Business Directory

In the advisory field, Allathan Associates has a complete spectrum of farming clients, from the family business to the larger multi-farm organisation to diverse rural estates. Many clients seek regular management advice to help achieve their objectives, whilst others will hire services only in response to a particular business issue or opportunity, such as acquiring additional land, starting a new venture, obtaining grant support, environmental advice, hiring a key employee, or changing a business structure. Our client base is primarily concentrated in North-east Scotland, although instructions are undertaken throughout Scotland, the UK, and occasionally abroad.
