Welcome to Stracathro Estates
Stracathro Estates LTD is a rural land based company based in Angus, on the east coast of Scotland. It is family owned but with outside directors.
With a turnover of £3.6 million, the company's principle activity is agriculture but power generation, through solar panels and a turbine, and residential lets play a significant role. We have two tenant farmers and forty residential properties, ranging from four bedroom farmhouses to two bedroom cottages. We let buildings for commercial use, and fields for horses and game rearing. We have an active sporting department, with salmon fishing on the North Esk, partridge and pheasant shoots and roe stalking.
We farm nearly 4,000 acres of arable crops, AD feedstock, greening, wild bird cover and forestry.
There are over 600 acres of woodland, both commercial and amenity, and over seventeen miles of maintained hedging. We have five miles of rivers and burns either wholly on, or contiguous to the land. All are buffer stripped to reduce run-off.
We take our environmental responsibilities seriously, and are proud of our recent 2023 accreditation with Wildlife Estates Scotland.
We believe strongly in the community and have developed 11 affordable houses, provide public amenities and worked to maintain essential local services such as Stracathro School.
