Scotland: High Nature Value farming and crofting
Scottish Environment Link has published a file note that provides a definition of High Nature Value Farming and argues that it deserves more consideration. A thought from the file note to ponder: rather than see a large part of Scotland dismissed as being a 'Less Favoured Area' (LFA) would it be better to view these areas as being potentially high value in terms of the environmental goods produced. Is your cup half empty or half full? Perhaps the introduction of 'Areas facing Natural Constraint' (ANC) as a successor to LFA will help introduce a change of perception.
