Majority support plan for wild land

The vast majority of those who responded to Scottish Natural Heritage's consultation on its map of Scotland's core areas of wild land support it, say the John Muir Trust.

The charity analysed the 410 responses received and found 80% backed it; 14% opposed it and 6% were neutral. But it was criticised by the Crofting Commission and community owners of South Uist.
