Executive Summary

This publication brings together information on rented agricultural land in Scotland from the annual June Agricultural Census, information on seasonal lets collected through the Single Application Form, the December Agricultural Survey and from the Farm Accounts Survey.

Land tenure and conditions for renting have long been an important issue in Scottish life. The Scottish Government set up a Review of Agricultural Holdings Legislation to consider policy and legislative changes in this area. The Group produced its final report in January 2015.
