Leading land and property specialist Bell Ingram has strengthened its Rural Land Management team with three new appointments in Perth.
New recruits Douglas Ogilvie, Isla Shaw and Niall Blair will be based at the company’s Perth HQ but will work with clients across Scotland.
Douglas Ogilvie, from Milnathort, joins the business as a Farm Management Consultant further broadening Bell Ingram’s strength and expertise in the wider farming industry. He will specialise in farm management, contract farming agreements, Single Farm Payments and other grant schemes.
Douglas has over 36 years’ experience in farm management having worked in this role for Andersons, Smiths Gore, Savills and the SAC.
Isla Shaw, from Saline, Fife, joins the business at Senior Associate level and arrives from Galbraith where she spent six years carrying out Sales, Valuations and Lettings. At Bell Ingram, Isla will advise on all aspects of estate and farm management and undertake a range of rural valuations.
Isla’s background is in livestock farming, having been brought up on the family beef and sheep farm in Fife. She is a graduate of SRUC in Edinburgh and is a RICS Chartered Surveyor and Registered Valuer.
Niall Blair joins the Rural team as a RICS Surveyor with 20 years’ experience in land management. Having trained initially as an agricultural advisor/land agent in the Scottish borders, Niall went onto work for Tarmac Ltd. where he practiced a mix of mineral, commercial and rural surveying.
Niall has a wealth of experience in practical farm management and currently runs his own upland farming business in the Angus Glens.
Mark Mitchell, Managing Partner at Bell Ingram, said: “We are delighted to welcome Douglas, Isla and Niall on board. This substantial expansion of our Rural Land Management team in Perth is in response to increasing demand for our specialised services to longstanding and new clients.”
