Was forwarded to me today, do you want to aid preservation of part of
the Scottish highlands?

Nothing to do with me, just thought it would be useful to flag it up.


Careful with that use of the word "preservation". Too many of these
community land deals are aimed at providing land for wind-farms in
return for a quick buck. While I'm not denying the rights of the
residents to make what they can of their lot, I certainly begrudge
subsiding their rapaciousness from the public purse.
