Leasing Commercial Property on the Estate
For nearly 700 years Leys Estate has been an integral part of the local community and economy. It is in all of the local communities interests to see Banchory and the wider area prosper and so we are proud to assist businesses by providing quality leased commercial property and offering stepped rental deals and flexible facilities where possible to new start businesses.
There are currently nearly 120 commercial leases in operation across the Hill of Banchory and wider estate. These range from modern small and large office facilities, light industrial space, retail, craft food, sport, tourism, arts and music right down to individual garage stances and beehives. We take great interest in the success of the businesses on our estate and will help in any way we can to facilitate this success. Please see our Estate Business Directory for all the businesses supported or facilitated by Leys Estate.
The Hill of Banchory Business Park (see section below) was built on former commercial woodland owned by Leys Estate and we offer commercial units for sale or lease. Whatever your requirement we have land and facilities available for lease. Contact the estate office for further details.
