About Us

Who we are.

Established in October 2019, the Scottish Land Matching Service was formed in response to industry concerns about the lack of opportunities for new entrants to the industry relating to availability of agricultural land and letting in Scotland and difficulty in accessing capital funding.

The SLMS aims to provide:

Database of Opportunities

A bank of opportunities relating to land in Scotland.

Advice and Guidance

A trusted advisor service to help parties make informed decisions about arrangements relating to land.

The Tools You Need

Independence, confidentiality, initial advice on key considerations and a signposting service to further advice.

What we do:

The SLMS acts as a free service connecting those in the agricultural sector throughout Scotland. It engages with those seeking or offering joint venture arrangements in relation to land and facilitates discussions with a view to parties progressing to successful arrangements. By doing so, it provides a platform for opportunities for the next generation of farmers and crofters and forms part of an exit strategy for those wishing to take a gradual or complete step back from farming and crofting.

Register now and get involved.

The SLMS has been created for the benefit of the Scottish farming and crofting industries. If you want to use the services and are looking for help, advice or guidance, contact us.
