Leys Estate looking over Banchory and Crathes

“Delivering flexible, diverse and profitable commercial agreements, leases and licences for land and property.”

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.

We currently manage 128 commercial leases and licences across Hill of Banchory, Crathes and Banchory ranging from modern office facilities, light industrial space, retail, sport, tourism and culture 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 was built on former commercial woodland owned by Leys Estate and offers commercial units for sale or lease.  Whatever your requirement we have land and facilities available for lease. Further information can be found here.
