Leys Estate at Banchory Show 2022

At the heart of the Estate

Life in Crathes and Banchory and Leys Estate are deeply intertwined.  The Leys Estate Group strives to provide the facilities and opportunities that help build a thriving community.

Throughout the year we make land available to host a diverse range of activities and events in the area from festivals, to sporting events, club gatherings and the circus.

The Milton Events Field at Milton of Crathes is also a key community facility, providing a versatile location for events big and small from horse shows, to flyball competitions and the Caravan Club.

In addition, we support the community by making land available for housing, fuelling the continued growth of Banchory. We have also played a key role in the development of Banchory Sports Village through the provision of land for the facilities at no charge.

We also lease land at nominal rates to a whole host of community enterprises such as Deeside Rugby Club, Banchory St Ternan Football Club, Milton Art Gallery, Deeside Dance Studio and The Barn.

However, our support doesn’t end there. We are passionate about supporting local events, clubs, third sector organisations and individuals whether it is a promising local athlete, annual event or fundraising campaign.
