Hiawatha

I camped illegally on a Scottish mountain for a year, including a stint at the summit. Where I would discuss the inequalities of land use and ownership in Scotland with passing hill walkers and the odd stray sheep, earning me the moniker Hiawatha in the local pub. I left the mountain owing to strong prevailing winds.

"Scotland has the most unequal distribution of land in western Europe. In a country of over 19 million acres, over 16 million acres is privately owned rural land. Two-thirds of this land is owned by 1252 landowners, (0.025% of the population)."  (Wightman:1999).
