Roslin- 29 November, 2013
By: Helen Armstrong, Broomhill Ecology
Covering around 70% of the land surface of Scotland, the uplands are of low productivity with poor soils, high rainfall and high exposure. As a result, they are largely used for low-input, low-output activities that employ relatively few people: hill sheep farming, grouse shooting, deer stalking or conifer-based forestry. The prevailing view of the uplands is that they are ‘naturally’ low in productivity. There is compelling evidence, however, that the history of land use stretching back six millennia has led to significant declines in productivity, biodiversity and ecosystem service provision. These declines continue to this day but, with appropriate measures, this trend could be reversed.
