    Ulva, a remote Scottish island, is up for sale, and the government is deciding whether to give the local community the right to buy it, instead of it being sold on the open market. Land ownership in Scotland is a sensitive issue, with a few wealthy people owning half of all private land. But the government wants to change that.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Ulva.
