Our rural property experts in the Agricultural and Rural Property Team have extensive experience of all aspects of the purchase and sale of rural properties. We assist clients in buying and selling everything from large landed estates, farms, agricultural land, islands, amenity and commercial woodlands, small cottages to castles and country houses.

How we can help you 

We can also assist with the acquisition of sporting rights, be it the right to salmon fishings, a sporting lease or the creation or acquisition of an interest in a sporting syndicate.

We also regularly act for borrowers and lenders in the financing of rural property.

We act collaboratively with other professional advisers (including accountants, land agents, farming consultants and forestry managers) to ensure that the service which is delivered fully meets your requirements and is as cost efficient as possible.

Our thorough knowledge of the rural property market in Scotland makes us well-placed to assist with your transaction.
