Rural land and business specialists Bell Ingram have opened a new office in the former Bank of Scotland building in Beauly’s vibrant High Street.
The relocation is part of Bell Ingram’s strategy to grow its cross-sector market share in the Highlands and allows the existing estate agency, land management, design, forestry and utilities teams in Bonar Bridge and Inverness to come together into one hub.
The office is led by Partner Rob Whitson, a RICS Registered valuer, who, with his team have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the rural sector, advising clients on a wide range of matters including strategic planning and development, estate and fisheries management, and valuation of property for tax, secured lending and farm and estate diversification.
Rob is supported by a highly qualified and knowledgeable team comprising: Murray Fleming (Associate, Bell Ingram Design), Lauren Livingstone (Bell Ingram Design), Charlotte Gilfillan (Associate, Rural Land Management), Joanne Stennett (Associate, Estate Agency), Ian Blois (Rural Land Management), Julie Connor (Property Assistant), Karen MacLeod (Administrator) and Simone Hogan (Secretary).
New office at 5 High Street, Beauly.
Rob Whitson, Partner in charge of the Highlands, said: “Our ambition is to drive economic growth, and this move to Beauly will give us much greater visibility, a welcoming space for clients, as well as putting ourselves in the centre of the Highlands. We are very much looking forward to welcoming our clients, old and new, to our new office in the very near future.”
Mark Mitchell, Managing Partner at Bell Ingram, added: “What sets Bell Ingram apart is our in-depth, local knowledge of the region, our attention to detail and, above all, our desire to go the extra mile for our clients. The new Beauly office is a reflection of this and reaffirms Bell Ingram’s commitment to both new and existing clients as we grow and strengthen our presence in this important marketplace.”
Bell Ingram currently manages many hundreds of thousands of hectares of private and corporate estates across the UK and the new Highland office offers a Land Management service alongside its Design service, together with a dedicated practice of architects, planning consultants and building surveyors.
The move also strengthens Bell Ingram’s ambition to become the region’s premium rural estate agency.
Joanne Stennett, Associate in charge of Estate Agency, said: “From stunning character cottages to baronial castles, the Highland region has some of Scotland’s most desirable property and whether you are buying or selling, Bell Ingram’s highly qualified team can advise on all aspects of property sales.
“We are seeing a big demand for homes in the whole of the Highland area, from buyers south of the border and abroad. Encouragingly there is no indication that Brexit is deterring home movers and, with more property coming up for sale, the outlook is healthy as market confidence continues to grow.”
