Collecting the Present: Land Reform


 
What have a drum, a sign and a door knocker got to do with land ownership in Scotland?

All is revealed in the next film in our Collecting the Present series, which explores objects that document community buyouts in the islands of Eigg and Ulva.

Land ownership has been a contested issue in Scotland for centuries. Community buyouts aim to redistribute Scotland’s land by putting it in the hands of the people who live and work in the local area.

Discover more about the unusual objects we've collected to tell this story in our new film.

Collecting the Present explores how our collection reflects changes in Scottish identity and the way the past is understood.
