Scottish independence: Would saying 'Yes' affect land reform?

BBC Scotland's referendum correspondent Laura Bicker is on the Isle of Harris looking at the impact on land reform.

The triathlon competitor was challenged to swim, cycle and run across the Western Isles.

In the second of Laura's three reports, she looks at the impact independence could have on land reform in Scotland.

The minister responsible for land reform has previously said MSPs will have failed the people of Scotland if they do not reduce the dominance of traditional sporting estates.

Environment minister Paul Wheelhouse told BBC Scotland the country needs a fairer distribution of land.

Estate owners have challenged whether the concentration of land ownership is a problem.
