About this event

Andy Wightman is an expert on land ownership in Scotland and what he addresses in his books and articles is how power is exercised in Scotland through Land; in our past and to this day and have attempts to redistribute this power more equitably made any difference? These are the questions that have beset Andy for the last 20 years: Who Owns Scotland? How did they get it? What happened to all the common land in Scotland? Has the Scottish Parliament made any difference? Can we get our common good land back? For all those with an interest in urban and rural land in Scotland and the current Land Reform Bill- Andy provides a fascinating and illuminating discussion on one of the most important and pressing political questions in Scotland - Who owns Scotlands Land and how this matters in the 21st Century
