CKD Galbraith and United Auctions now work closely together on farm, property and land sales and other services such as development consultancy, valuation and compensation work.

The alliance is a result of the acquisition by CKD Galbraith of Macdonald Fraser, the chartered surveyors and rural land and property consultants.

Tim Kirkwood, Chief Executive of CKD Galbraith, said: "This development has considerably enhanced our service to the rural sector and is a clear message that we value agricultural business. Macdonald Fraser has been a trusted ally to generations of farmers throughout the country and with our own rural expertise we hope to be the consultancy of choice."
