You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Craig talks to Andy Wightman, possibly Scotland’s foremost expert on land reform, about the Scottish Government’s new Land Reform Bill and his updated analysis of his Who Owns Scotland? report which shows that in the past decade or so, Scotland’s already very concentrated patterns of land ownership have got even more so with just 433 people now owning 50% of Scotland’s rural land.

Andy’s report can be read here.

And his blog, including a detailed analysis of the Government’s Bill, can be read here.
