Why is landscape important
Scotland’s landscape provides the physical foundation for our lives and the places where we live, work, learn and play.
Access to high quality landscape influences our health, wellbeing and livelihoods. Landscape plays a vital role in tackling the global issues of climate change and biodiversity loss that are already having a major impact on all our lives.
Scotland’s landscape is essential to our nation’s economic success both directly, in terms of the natural capital which underpins many industries, and indirectly through its impact on quality of life which attracts people to live in, work in and visit Scotland.
