Landscape for Scotland

Scotland’s landscapes are diverse, rich and unique in the world. Forged by the forces of time, climate and humanity both the natural and built environment are an enormous asset to our country.

As a devolved nation Scotland also has a range of legislation and policy which differs from that of the wider UK, and which governs the work of landscape professionals across the country. In light of this the LIS has developed its vision to promote and create great places – places that are beautiful, multi-functional, sustainable and embedded in Scotland’s communities.
