Scotland's Land Speculation

"Land grabbing, speculation, or investing to decarbonise – whatever you want to describe it as, Scotland’s land is being bought up at an ever increasing rate by the new ‘Green Lairds’. As reported in The Insider back in 2020, BrewDog bought 2,000 acres of grazing land to plant trees and offset its global carbon footprint. Other speculators have joined in buying up land at such a rate in Scotland that prices are rocketing beyond the range of community buy outs. Government bodies have been slow to react."
