Rural and Agricultural Property Law

Our team provides a complete legal service for the agricultural community on all aspects of Rural and Agricultural Property Law. Our solicitors advise owners of farms, estates and other rural businesses on legal matters including acquisition and disposal of land and properties, property finance and the sale of development land. We combine the skills and knowledge of our experienced legal staff, working across several departments in the firm.

We have been involved in a number of rural regeneration projects and the right to buy under the Land Reform legislation. We acted for Macrihanish Airbase Community Company (MACC) in their groundbreaking buyout of the redundant 1,000-acre airbase at Macrihanish from the MOD. This has been one of the largest community buyouts in Scotland to date and we are delighted to be working with MACC to take forward their plans for the future of the site.

We also worked for the landowner in the amicable agreement with Carbeth Hutters Community Company to enable to company to take over the hut land at Carbeth, near Milngavie.
