§ (2) For the purposes of this Section the expression "small holding" means any holding within the meaning of the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act, 1908, which either does not exceed fifty acres, or if exceeding fifty acres, is of an annual value as entered in the valuation roll not exceeding fifty pounds.
§ (3) Where a landlord and a tenant agree or the Land Court decide that the tenant is a landholder or a statutory small tenant, as the case may be, within the meaning of this Act, it shall be the duty of such landlord and tenant and of the Land Court to communicate such agreement or decision to the Board for the purposes of the small holdings register: Provided that a person shall not be held a landholder or a statutory small tenant by reason only that he is entered as such on the small holdings register.
§ (4) A small holding which is or has been entered on the register shall not be amalgamated with or merged in any other holding within the meaning of the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act, 1908, except with the sanction of the Board.
