A review of land reform in Scotland is to be carried out, First Minister Alex Salmond has announced. Speaking on Skye, ahead of a summer cabinet meeting, Mr Salmond said he had set-up a group of experts to look at the legislation, consider potential reform, and report back to ministers.
He wants the group "to deliver radical change" for both rural and urban areas. It will be chaired by former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Dr Alison Elliot. Land reform campaigner Prof James Hunter and Dr Sarah Skerratt, who have experience of the Highlands and Islands and rural development, will be vice-chair people.
