About Scottish Land & Estates

About Us

 
For over 100 years, Scottish Land & Estates has been the voice of landowners and rural businesses throughout Scotland. We are a membership-based organisation representing a wide range of rural businesses, including farmers, foresters, tourism operators, housing providers, leisure companies, and renewable energy providers.
 
Our members provide a wide range of economic, environmental and social benefits which, although not unique, are vital to the success and survival of communities throughout rural Scotland. They play a critical role in ensuring sustainable, healthy and empowered rural communities, providing housing, employment and a wide range of other public benefits.
 
Our members provide: 
  • Food in the shape of crops and livestock;
  • Employment and affordable housing in rural areas;
  • Tourism, recreation and health opportunities;
  • Wood and fibre products from timber production;
  • Caring for landscapes, habitats and wildlife;
  • Investing in and maintain the rural built heritage of Scotland;
  • Providing business premises and infrastructure for small rural businesses.
  • Contributing to efforts to combating climate change
  • Developing renewable energy
