This chapter addresses the question of what environmental damage is and how far the law of Scotland recognizes the concept at all. It considers the part played by the ‘common law’ of Scotland and the impact of legislation in this field. It argues that Scots law is a hybrid system that does not, of itself, assist in the definition and evaluation of environmental damage.
