(ii)such other grant of a public nature as the Scottish Ministers may by order specify.
(5)In the case of limited duration tenancies, such use of any of the land, or such change to the land, for a non-agricultural purpose as has been permitted under section 40 or 41 is to be treated as being in accordance with the rules of good husbandry.
