The article reports on the acute shortages of farmland in Scotland and increasing land prices. It reports that arable land rose between 25 percent and 40 percent in 2007. Because of this, agents say that there is scope for further but slower growth in the coming years. However, they say that prices had not risen as fast for hill and stock farms, but demand for this category has been good.
