We are working to create a Scotland where everybody can benefit from the ownership and use of the nation’s land and buildings. Land reform can reduce inequality, improve quality of life and support and benefit everyone in society.

We work with a wide range of stakeholders across a number of sectors, both public, private and social enterprise, to deliver our programme of work.  We stimulate fresh thinking, supporting change on the ground and making recommendations to Scottish Ministers, where appropriate, for legislative and policy change across our four priority areas.
