Coronavirus (COVID-19): Support for Scottish Land & Estates members

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Support for Scottish Land & Estates members

Press Release

At Scottish Land & Estates, we are continuing to monitor all information available regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19). We are acutely aware that the governmental guidance on mitigating the spread of Covid-19 is going to have some impact on Scottish Land & Estates. However, the service we provide to our members will remain the same.

As of 17 March, our colleagues at SLE are now primarily working from home, following government recommendations. We will, for now, have a skeleton-crew in the office, who are able to forward calls if necessary. We are ready to continue offering our services to members. Whether it’s a question for our policy team or a query for our membership or regional teams, we will continue to offer members a great service.

We have compiled the most relevant information to help our members adapt to the changing circumstances, as guidance on the virus develops. We would encourage all members to read and follow the information on our new dedicated Coronavirus webpage, which will be regularly updated to ensure it contains the most up-to-date and relevant information.

We are committed to minimising risk of exposure and transmission of this virus to our members, and as such have taken the decision to cancel or postpone some of our upcoming events. We will keep our website up to date with any changes to our schedule of events, and we will be directly in touch with everyone who has subscribed to an affected event. If you have any queries, please get in touch with our Communications Team on 0131 653 5400 or by emailing

There will be challenging times ahead for our rural communities, businesses and for wider society. The most important thing we can do right now is the heed the advice of health officials. Please follow all governmental and official guidelines to help make staff and communities remain safe.

In the meantime, its business as usual at SLE as we continue to work to ensure that our members’ businesses as well as wider rural Scotland thrive.

Please do keep in touch with us. We are here to support our members and their businesses and will do all we can throughout this extremely challenging time.
