CKD Galbraith Opens New Central Scotland Hub

CKD Galbraith announced today a significant expansion of its rural property and agricultural services.

We are to open a new Central Scotland hub' office, based at the Stirling Agricultural Centre. The new office, which will be staffed initially by 20 personnel, will provide comprehensive property services to the agricultural and rural sectors.

The establishment of an office at the Stirling Agricultural Centre will enable us to strengthen further its alliance with United Auctions (UA), Scotland's leading livestock auctioneers and procurement specialists.

CKD Galbraith is now Scotland's most comprehensive independent property consultancy with 12 main offices across the country.

James Galbraith, chairman of CKD Galbraith, said: "This is an exciting development for our firm and, more importantly, will offer improved services to our clients across the central region and the West of Scotland. Through our four-year long alliance with United Auctions we have been able to broaden our offer to the farming community such as property sales and other professional services related to renewables, valuation, compulsory purchase and finance through the AMC. We are delighted that our  partnership with UA will be further enhanced by opening an office with a strong team at the Stirling Agricultural Centre."

Neil McLean, group joint managing director of UA, said: "We're delighted to welcome one of Scotland's premier rural property consultancies to Stirling. Their new rural hub' will reinforce the City's excellent agricultural proposition."

UA's executive chairman, David Leggat, said: "Our two companies work extremely well together and a new office at our Agricultural Centre will offer the rural property sector better services, particularly the many farmers who attend the centre."

We will be maintaining our presence in local Estate Offices in Houston, Renfrewshire, and Bishopbriggs, East Dunbartonshire.
