Individuals and businesses that operate in the ever-changing rural sector are each dealing with their unique business challenges and opportunities, whether it is managing a large estate for future generations or diversifying hill sheep land into wind farm use. As such, it is important their advisers understand not only the law which affects all aspects of the rural industry but also the non-legal issues which farmers, landowners and rural businesses face on a daily basis.

At Thorntons we have been advising landowners and farmers in Scotland for over

150 years. Our Land and Rural Business team are proud of our long tradition of acting for the agricultural sector and our emphasis on getting to know our clients. And because we understand rural issues and have the expertise, we can give our clients focused, relevant answers fast.

We offer a complete service for rural property, business and personal matters. We pride ourselves on making the law understandable to clients and providing excellent service which puts you, the client, at the forefront of everything we do.
