Not wishing to be totally cynical, but finding it rather difficult, I have the feeling that comments made by Alex Salmond are rather contradictory. On the one hand he wants independence for Scotland and on the other is willing to sell/give a huge piece to an American.
Some things will never change perhaps!! One being politics!!!
I was at Lands End in the summer, on the start of a south to north cycle run, I know what you mean but, i'm sure the people who's incomes depend on it are glad it's there. in the grand scheme of things it's only a very small part of a masive bit of empty ground. I, sure the wild life will enjoy the pretty fairways & greens as much as the golfers. (;-)) Lixdexik.
Hardly on the same scale and there will still be wildlife around as there is at every other golf course! The golf course will only use a small proportion of the dunes. It is an area where jobs are much needed!
