Glad to learn of your extended portfolio.  Certainly it's appropriate for you to be on Rural Affairs.

Andy Wightman & Graham Boyd's idea for the Cuillins is one of the best ideas to surface recently.  It might light a fire under the land reform capacities which the executive's cosmetic proposals don't even touch...
I am interested to learn more of your withdrawal from Westminster.  No criticism; makes sense, and you know I feared you were overworking.  Congrats again on assiduous service at both ends of the country.  I hope a suitable, electable candidate is chosen.  You know I would favour someone from local soil, but not being a party person, my opinion is worth just that.
You'll be a hard act to follow, and a fine half of a dynamite team, should it go the right way.

I am giving you and your support staff the links below to work I've done on land reform and the forestry strategy.  Comments from yourselves welcome.  I shall be responding as an individual, local community activist, and the Centre fof Human Ecology (wherin I am a postgraduate student) will be responding as an educational institutional think tank.  Perhaps others.
On Land reform, there is a paper I wrote for Andy Wightman's caledonia pages at:
The conclusion may be of interest, and the rest if you have the headspace...
A (draft) response to a (draft)(or daft?) strategy
It's a very rough draft at the moment and I would welcome critical response (already have some)

Very much in common cause,

Ed Iglehart

Men occasionally stumble over the truth,
       but most of them pick themselves up
       and hurry off as if nothing happened.
