Here’s an illuminating post from Andy Wightman on media reports of booming prices for farmland. The detail is worth reading as it exposes the “news” as nothing more than market-boosting propaganda by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, whose members live off fees from property sales. A call to journalists: if you’re too lazy/incompetent to do your job properly please at least check with Andy Wightman before publishing any old press release about land issues in Scotland.
