Finding the perfect property or estate is what really counts. We are accomplished in matching the right buyers to the right properties and our wide knowledge of sporting estates throughout Scotland is invaluable. We only ever work for one client in relation to any transaction and either act for the seller or for a retained client to buy. Our intimate understanding of the Scottish property market means that we are knowledgeable of all open market properties which we can appraise for their suitability in relation to retained clients.

We can readily provide advice to prospective purchasers as to properties that may be suitable for their specific needs and, if required, undertake due diligence, valuations (RICS registered valuers) and effectively conduct negotiations.

We have over 30 years of combined experience dealing with some of the most exclusive sporting estates, lodges and country houses in Scotland.

After your purchase, if required, we can provide a secure and regular income stream through our exclusive letting agency, which specialises in sporting and property rentals. We can also offer professional advice, full management and consultancy.

Market knowledge, a professional approach, attention to detail and a discreet and personal service is what sets Land & Estate apart. Why not call us to arrange for either Richard Seaman or Kathryn Bontoft to visit you and discuss your ideal requirements.

Acquisition Service

Goldsmith & Co. are one of Scotland’s leading estate and country property specialists. We are a wholly independent Chartered Surveying and land agency practice run by two Directors Richard Seaman and George Goldsmith along with Kathryn Bontoft. With strong and established links to some of the most prestigious Estates throughout Scotland, we offer personal and professional advice, specialising in the sale and acquisition of Natural Capital and Biodiversity Initiatives, Sporting Estates, Forestry, Farms and Country Houses both on and off market.

Our acquisitions service is tailored to your bespoke requirements and is an effective way to identify off market properties that might otherwise not be available. As part of our service, we undertake property due diligence, organise any specialised survey work, act on your behalf in negotiations and oversee the legal process. Once retained we will dedicate time to your search and offer advice on every aspect of purchasing a property in Scotland.

Valuations and Market Appraisals

Both Richard and Kathryn are accredited Chartered Surveyors and RICS registered valuers. If you would like some advice on value, please do not hesitate to contact us. We undertake independent ‘Red Book’ valuations for country houses, estates and rural properties, including probate, tax planning and estate restructuring. In addition to the above we offer less formal market appraisals. Therefore, if you are considering a sale or simply looking for a guide price, if placed on the open market, we are happy to meet with you and give you our thoughts.
All discussions are highly confidential.

Please feel to call us on 07826 201429 or email Kathryn at
