About us

The Glenlivet Estate works to protect and nurture the natural landscapes, habitat and the wildlife that are in our care – ensuring they can be enjoyed by everyone, for generations to come.

Lying at the edge of the Cairngorms in north-east Scotland, the majority of the Glenlivet Estate falls within the Cairngorms National Park. The Crown Estate acquired the Glenlivet Estate in 1937.  Following the Scotland Act 2016, managment of The Crown Estate's Scotland Portfolio transfered to Scottish Ministers in April 2017. A new body, Crown Estate Scotland, now manages these assets.  Covering over 58,000 acres, Glenlivet comprises over 30 let farms, 8,500 acres of commercial forests and a sporting tenancy including grouse moors, salmon fishing and deer stalking.

Within Glenlivet, Crown Estate Scotland has also encouraged sustainable economic development backed up by significant re-investment, a policy that has won the estate several major awards. Facilities and services for visitors are continually being developed and it is the policy of Crown Estate Scotland to encourage new enterprises and activities, which are in keeping with the area’s traditional land uses.
