Scotland’s land is a valuable asset. It has evolved over billions of years and is constantly changing. Subsurface,  land provides us with  valuable resources (minerals, ores, aggregates and fuel). On its surface, we grow food and timber, build roads and houses, and much of our water filters through it.  Land stores carbon and supports a wide range of habitats and species.
