Herald p.10 Billionaire fashion magnate adds 20,000 acres to Scottish portfolio. A billionaire Danish fashion magnate has become the second-largest private landowner in Britain with the purchase of the 20,000 acre Gaick estate in Inverness-shire. Anders Holch Povlsen purchased the land and associated properties from Xavier-Louis Vuitton. The latest acquisition by Mr Povlsen, who already owns the Glenfeshie, Ben Loyal and Kinloch estates, has increased the 43-year-old’s land portfolio in Scotland to around 150,000 acres, second only to Buccleuch Estates...He has been criticised in some quarters for mounting a “land grab” of Scotland to take advantage of farming subsidies, though others claim he is motivated by a desire to protect wild land.
What I would say is, he is not grabbing subsidies and as far as I know, no one has lost their job on any of the Esatates that he has bought.
