The Scottish Landscape Forum was established in 2006 (with a time limited existence of around 18 months) by Scottish Natural Heritage with support from Scottish Ministers. It brought together some of the key stakeholders with an influence upon or a stake in the state of the landscape. Its terms of reference included facilitating discussion, preparing advice and promoting action for the better care of Scotland's landscape. The Forum was specifically tasked to prepare advice and guidance relevant to landscape.
In March 2007 the Forum submitted a report 'Scotland's Living Landscapes - Places for People' to Scottish Ministers for consideration. The Report takes as a central theme the European Landscape Convention (ELC) and the implications for Scotland following its adoption by the United Kingdom (UK). The Forum was wound up during December 2008.
