MSP Nigel Don recently learned about important investments made by a local estate to diversify and innovate.
Mr Don met with Hugh Campbell Adamson and farm manager Gordon Cairns at the Stracathro and Careston estate where he learned of the investments made by the Estate to diversify and innovate.
An example of this is the installation of a new Bio mass plant which provides enough energy for five properties on the land and reduces the overall environmental footprint from the estate. The visit was of particular interest to Nigel as a member of the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee.
Mr Don told the Review: “It is encouraging to see local landowners investing both in their tenants and in the environment. This new biomass plant which will heat five properties will save householders between £100 and £200 each year. Additionally it will much reduce the Estate’s carbon footprint.”
