Scottish Land & Estates Spring ConferenceScottish Land & Estates Spring Conference

Leys Estate CEO David Smart at SL&E Conference

A key part of the Group’s Forward Strategy is communication and engagement and recently David Smart and Grace Noble of Aberdeenshire Highland Beef were invited to speak at the Scottish Land & Estates Spring Conference in Edinburgh.

The conference focused on ‘Maximising the Margins’ and the need for change in the sector in order to flourish in the next decade and beyond. As part of this, David and Grace were invited to share in front of an audience of over 200 people how a successful partnership can been developed between the estate and Grace’s growing food and tourism business based at Lochton Farm on Leys Estate.

Preceding their question and answer session, a short film was shown about the Lochton of Leys Case Study featuring Grace and David. You can watch the case study here.
