Scotlandís environment is
generally in a good condition. It is world-famous and generates wealth
for Scotland, both directly (e.g. supporting fisheries, providing water
for the whisky industry, growing crops and timber) and indirectly (e.g.
benefiting human health, through tourism and the recreation
opportunities that a healthy environment affords). A recent study valued
the benefits provided by Scotlandís environment to be worth up to £23.5
billion per year.
