Scottish Farmland Market Review | Spring 2019

1 min

In 2019 the market will continue to be characterised by extremes dictated by land type, flexibility of land use and geography.

Nationwide, 2018 was characterised by uncertainty and in early 2019, the future of the UK and its relationship with the EU continues to be unclear.

In the farming world, opinion is split regarding what the future holds, and we at Strutt & Parker find it similarly difficult to predict what lies ahead.

However, our experience, coupled with our comprehensive Farmland Database which records all farm sales in Scotland, provides us with an illuminating insight into the current marketplace.
