Murdo Fraser MSP for Mid-Scotland and Fife, visited Atholl Estates on 28 September 2012 to see firsthand the challenges and opportunities faced by those running a large estate. During his visit Mr Fraser also learned of the various ways in which Atholl Estates works with the local community for the benefit of the local population.
The visit was organised by Scott Petrie, North East & Central Regional Manager for Scottish Land & Estates.
Scott Petrie said, "Atholl Estates is an excellent example of how local estates interact with, and are valued by local communities. Visits of this nature allow MSPs to see the true value and contribution made by estates whilst undertaking the difficult task of operating in the current economic climate.”
