A coelo usque ad centrum
In Scottish land law, the term 'A coelo usque ad centrum', meaning ‘from the sky (or heavens) to the centre’ refers to the ownership of land in Scotland, which generally includes everything above and everything under the land - through to the centre (of the earth). There are some exceptions to this, such as mineral rights that may be owned by another party other than the owner of the land.
