Crown Estate Scotland began operating on 1 April 2017. The business is tasked with managing assets on behalf of Scottish Ministers, including agricultural and forestry land, most of the seabed, just under half of the foreshore and some commercial property. The organisation's Chair is Amanda Bryan and the Chief Executive is Ronnie Quinn.
The business ensures that the assets are enjoyed and developed sustainably to deliver benefits to communities and the nation, with revenue profit going to Scottish Government. Our business plan details our priorities and objectives for 2017/18 and our Framework Document sets out our functions, duties and powers.
