The National Trust for Scotland is one of the largest landowners in Scotland, owning one per cent of its countryside. Half of the Trust land is designated for its natural heritage in one form or another, one being a World Heritage site - the highest accolade that can be bestowed. This comprehensive title looks at the Trust's credentials for natural heritage management and examines the properties it owns. Could or should the Trust expend its resources equally across its natural heritage responsibilities? How does it fulfill its role as landlord and as part of the local community? These questions and others are answered in this book. The opening chapter briefly discusses the history of the Trust and discusses some of the general countryside management issues of the day with which the Trust has to grapple. There then follows chapters on ten properties which look critically and intimately at their management. The final chapter sums up where the Trust stands today as a natural heritage manager for Scotland and suggests that there is an opportunity ahead for radical change.
