About this book

The influence of farming and forestry on Scotland's landscapes is seen as increasingly important, and new access rights have been put in place by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. Although these changes bring uncertainty and challenges, they also bring a major opportunity to move decisively towards integrating landscape, biodiversity and recreational objectives in land management. This book takes stock of the changes taking places and looks at a number of case studies, which suggest that progress is being made. The book looks ahead at future research, and highlights some key challenges to achieving better integration in the future.

The basic philosophy of Scottish Natural Heritage is simple: we must care for and sustain our natural heritage if we want it to sustain us. Its task is to secure the conservation and enhancement of Scotland's unique and precious natural heritage- the wildlife, the habitats and the landscapes, which have evolved in Scotland through the long partnership between people and nature.
