Brand New Podcast – The Lay of the Land

As part of the campaign, the Scottish Land Commission will be launching a brand-new podcast, The Lay of the Land, hosted by filmmaker and broadcaster Calum Maclean. Calum Maclean is best known for his work on BBC’s ‘The Social’ and BBC Alba series ‘Dhan Uisge’, which shared some of Scotland’s hidden outdoor swimming spots.

This new podcast aims to explore what land means to the people of Scotland: from the way it is used and owned and how those decisions are made, to the reuse of derelict sites and the wonderful transformations that have happened in communities across Scotland. Through discussion with a variety of guests, the podcast will explore how we can become more involved with the land around us and how being more engaged in the conversation can bring significant benefits to our lives and our local communities.

This week Calum talks to the winners of our My Land, My Story campaign, Kemnay Academy who talk to us about their influential story on the Kemnay Quarry and their vision for the future of land around them.
