Huge tracts of land in Scotland are owned by a ghastly cabal of human rights abuses and environment despoilers, a campaign group has claimed.
Global Justice Now has produced an interactive map detailing what it says is the true nature of land ownership in the country.
It lists seven global capitalists who own hundreds of thousands of acres worth of estates in the north of the country.
Liz Murray, head of Scottish campaigns at Global Justice Now, said: “Our new research exposes some of the super-rich who own vast tracts of land in Scotland, and unearths some unsavoury connections between those land owners and scandals of worker exploitation, human rights abuses and disregard for the environment around the world.
“We’ve found examples of seven big landowners across Scotland who have been involved in unregulated fracking, land grabs and privatisation of national parks in Africa, large scale trade union busting and job cuts in Mexico and Brazil, abuse of workers’ rights in the UK, or human rights abuses around the world.
"The Scottish Government must go further on land reform and fundamentally change Scotland’s absurdly outdated feudal system of land ownership which includes super-rich land barons like these."
The seven are Anders Povlsen, who owns 15,000 acres and is Scotland's second largest land owner, Rio Tinto, Paul van Vlissingen, the Vestey family, the de Spoelberch family, Majid Jafar and Lovat Investments Ltd.
