Private Estate Management

Our history began in 1899 with managing private estates in Scotland. We have managed some of the finest estates in Scotland throughout the last 100 years and continued to provide specialist advice in the rapidly changing political and financial climate.

Effective estate management demands a great many resources, but run properly can produce a great many rewards. We have worked alongside generations of estate owners, handling their affairs both sympathetically and efficiently and profitably and have learned how best to manage their affairs and aspirations.

Private Estate Management

Whether you want to maintain your estate as a home with assets or turn it into a commercial business, we’re there to guide you and manage the resources to ensure a successful future.

Whether its practical advice on farming, residential and commercial property rentals, or accounts handled, we have the right people for the job.

Land Use Consultancy

To meet the increasing demands for conservation and environmental advice, the Company has developed an association with a range of specialists, including landscape architects, planners, ecologists and water experts, and can respond to the needs of clients in both the public and private sectors to assist our own in house team.

In particular, we specialise in the development of conservation plans for degraded habitats, farm plans and the restoration and improvement of native woodlands. With the increasing demands for leisure, our consultancy team have undertaken a wide variety of studies on tourism and leisure development opportunities working closely with other specialist consultants, where appropriate.
