Most of our National Scenic Areas are Mountain areas. They followed the survey done by Countryside Commission, in turn based on Bill Murray's survey for the NTS.
In conversations with Bill [& Bob Grieve & Tom Wier] at SMC AGMs in the late 80s I asked why the Gardenston, Pennan coast or Bullets of Buchan hadn't made the list of NSAs and Bill smiled -"Bob," he said "I never went there".
Moral is (aside from how mistakes are compounded) - it is absolutely about the ordinary public visiting, nominating, voting and lobbying for such protection.
