BBC – BBC Radio Scotland Programmes – Out of Doors

Scotland is celebrated the world over for its landscape – people come here from all over the world to see our mountains, lochs and glens, often in search of a sense of wildness. But the truth is that the landscape we value so much is far from wild – it is the result of thousands of years of management by man. In a programme recorded last week at Battleby near Perth in front of an audience, Mark Stephen and his panel discuss the issues facing the future when it comes to managing Scotland’s landscape. From the conflict between attracting more tourists and fulfilling our renewable energy targets, to providing a secure food supply and encouraging people to live and work in rural communities.
