Bell Ingram cements relationship with farming community with NFU Scotland membership

We have shown our commitment to the Scottish farming community through a new membership with NFU Scotland.

Bell Ingram, which specialises in rural land management, including farm and estate sales, has joined the NFU Scotland network of farmers working towards a bright and sustainable future for Scottish agriculture.

With our roots in rural estate management, we manage some of UK’s finest agricultural and sporting estates and currently oversee hundreds of thousands of hectares of private and corporate estates across the UK.

Supporting the Scottish farming community is integral to Bell Ingram’s rural land management work and, with many of our team members from agricultural backgrounds, the NFU Scotland membership only further cements this close relationship.

The business closely aligns with NFU Scotland’s values and is committed to promoting sustainable Scottish farming alongside the union who are leading the industry on climate change.

Ross-shire Branch Chair, Alasdair Macnab welcomed the company as professional members when he presented Bell Ingram’s Rob Whitson with the official membership certificate.

Rob Whitson, Head of Bell Ingram’s Farm and Estates Sales Team and Highland Partner, commented: “There is a real synergy between Bell Ingram and NFUS and we couldn’t be more pleased to have joined as corporate members. By the nature of what we both do, we endeavour to support the farming community in our regions by being embedded at a local level, thereby understanding local pressures and providing tailored support.”

Alasdair Macnab, Chair of the Ross-shire Branch, said: “It is encouraging that companies like Bell Ingram are recognising the benefits of engaging more closely with the rural community where they operate. NFU Scotland looks forward to working with Bell Ingram in the future where its range of expertise and knowledge can help with our work and providing the best service to members.”

Johnny Hogg, Group Secretary of the Ross-Shire branch, added: “We are delighted to welcome the whole of the Bell Ingram team to the NFUS. Having worked with Charlotte and Rob in the Beauly office over a number of years, I have seen first-hand the care and attention they have provided to a vast number of our members and it is great that they have chosen to further strengthen their relationship with NFU Scotland by joining as Professional members. We look forward to having them and others join us at branch meetings going forward.”
