People, Land Use and Tourism

Publication year: 

As part of the Scottish programme, four case studies were undertaken, partly to examine the current situation with regard to forestry, and partly to pioneer the use of PRA tools in Scotland, though at this stage in a very extractive manner. In Tomintoul, the focus is on tourism due to its location in the Cairngorms region of Scotland. The changes in employment over time reflect an increase in services and a decrease in farming. Linkages between organizations are examined, again reflecting the importance of tourism, and social, land use and tenure maps are reproduced. Forestry, as a major land use is significant - although it is currently concentrated on private and forestry commision estates.

Interest groups: 
Of interest to those using PRA in a 'Northern' context, and agencies working at community level.
