Union to Host Tenant Farming Meeting on Islay

Expert panel to take questions on waygo, codes of practice and encouraging the next generation of tenant farmers

NFU Scotland, in partnership with Davidson & Robertson, are inviting tenant farmers, landlords and those with an interest in tenancy issues, to join an expert panel at Ionad Chaluim Chille Ìle (the Gaelic College), Bowmore, Islay, on Monday 28 October starting at 7pm.

The meeting will open with a presentation from Murray Philp, surveyor with Davidson & Robertson, on how to make use of the waygo amnesty, ahead of the deadline of 12 June 2020.

Practical examples of tenant’s improvements and fixtures will be given, alongside discussion about the nature of the improvement and if they are eligible for the amnesty. Step by step guidance about the amnesty process, along with what evidence and information is required to demonstrate that the improvement was carried out by the tenant will be outlined.

Mr Philp will then be joined by Andrew McCornick, President, NFU Scotland; Bob MacIntosh, Tenant Farming Commissioner; Ian Davidson, newly appointed Adviser to the Scottish Land Matching Service and Gemma Cooper, Head of Policy Team, NFU Scotland.

This top-notch panel will be available to answer questions from landlords, owner-occupiers and tenant farmers on all aspects of land tenancy and letting.

For NFU Scotland members, one-to-one surgeries with Murray Philp on waygo will be available from 3pm and can be booked in advance through the Islay office by contacting 01496 302005 or Email:

There will also be an NFUS Islay branch meeting at 5pm with Andrew McCornick and Gemma Cooper followed by a buffet supper ahead of the tenant farming meeting starting at 7pm.  Everyone is welcome but booking for the buffet supper is required.
