Meet the owners

The Boardroom is the showroom of Logie Timber, a full-circle timber business based on Logie Estate. 

Logie Timber is a partnership between Alec Laing of Logie Estate and Mark Councill of CleanCut Forestry. 

Mark is an experienced forester who is passionate about developing a market for high quality timber in the region. He sources this from forestry jobs where it would otherwise be a waste product or firewood. Logie Timber works with Mark’s pre-existing business to complete our full circle approach. 

Alec is a 5th generation landowner who manages his family’s property, Logie Estate, and its associated businesses. The estate has a significant amount of timber including interesting woods that aren’t suitable for traditional commercial forestry and could be put to good use with the will and the wherewithal. The idea of adding value to our local natural resources was the initial impetus to start Logie Timber. 

Mark and Alec are supported by an excellent team at Logie Timber, who have all taken a significant role in getting the business – and the buildings – off the ground. They continue to help keep your wood cut and dried and sawmill life running day to day.

Logie Timber

Logie Timber is a full-circle timber business based on Logie Estate

We have an emphasis on local wood, particularly hardwoods but we also work with softwoods. We love native species.

We are unique in that we can manage the full circle of the life and use of a tree, from seed to seed.

What We Do

Sawmilling

We offer a range of sawmilling services, working with industry leading equipment and techniques:

TRAK-MET TTP-600

Logosol C210 Edger

Stenner 36

We use no harmful chemicals in our sawmilling, we use Plantoil lubricant and huge runs of solar panels to offset our energy use.

Local. Sustainable.

Using only 100% Scottish timber and absolutely no harmful chemicals, we provide you with the tools and timber you need to make your project a success. Our woodworkers are experts in their craft and can help you with all your cladding, decking and treatment needs – as well as choosing the right wood for your project.

Planing and Sanding

Precision cutting using

SCM DMC 60 Belt Sander

PLANING – LOGOSOL PH 360 PLANER

Advise on Wood Uses & Connect You with the Makers

We can help with advice on which type of wood might suit for your projects. We currently stock dried local Elm, Oak, Ash, Larch, Douglas Fir & more. We also sell finished products and can recommend courses to learn to make your own.

Undertake Planting

We need to plant more hardwoods with end use in mind and are doing so on Logie Estate.

Full Service, if you like

You can use our services at any point in the cycle mentioned above. If you so choose, our fully qualified team can cut your tree, bring it back to our yard, process it and deliver the material back to you for your own projects. Furthermore, we can connect you with a maker to build it for you or suggest a course for you to learn to build your own.

How to Get in Touch

Please contact us on 01309 611769 if you’d like to discuss a project or a quote.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram to see what we’ve been up to recently.

Our Aim

Logie Timber’s aim is to create a legacy far greater than cladding and coffee tables. Wood can tell a story, be a conversation starter, become part of a family home; a living piece of history. The alternative? Ash and smoke.

We want to put sustainable Scottish woodland resources back to work. For too long now we’ve looked elsewhere for high quality timber while our own woodlands have been passed over or relegated to the fire pile.

We know that it’s far smarter to use what you have at hand, especially if it’s this good. Harnessing our own high quality, local timber and managing its source wisely, so that others have the chance to use it too, seems straightforward enough. That way, everyone benefits.

Terms & Conditions for fishing on Logie Estate

  1. Fishing on the river is restricted to 2 rods per beat and is to be by fly only. All fishing is from the right bank. By arrangement with the neighbouring estate there is no left bank fishing on the Relugas Middle and Top beats.
  2. The fishing is split into two 2 rod beats, Logie and Relugas, with Relugas sub divided into Middle and Top.  Beats can be taken together or separately. Logie is fished Monday to Saturday, Relugas Middle on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Relugas Top on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Beats change at midnight.
  3. Fishermen must contact Logie Estate office on 01309 611300 a day or so before arrival to organise being shown onto the river. A map of pools, beats and access routes will be provided.
  4. Bio-security is important to the future of the river and anglers are asked to observe protection measures. The Findhorn District Fishery Board Conservation Code will be strictly observed. To summarise: All fish caught up to 14th May inclusive must be released. From 15th May, all salmon over 9 lbs / 4 kg / 28 inches / 72 cm are to be returned.  Below that measurement at least 70% of salmon and 50% of grilse caught should be released and a maximum of 1 salmon and / or 2 grilse per rod per week may be retained. In September all fish are to be returned. No gaffs or tailers are allowed.
  5. The Findhorn District Fishery Board Bio-security measures will be strictly observed and all fishermen in the party must sign the Bio-security Declaration. (Also available at http://www.fnlft.org.uk/downloads/)
  6. The Estate recommends that barbless hooks are used, fishermen are in possession of a disgorger and that knotless nets are used. All possible care should be taken when returning fish to the river, they should be handled as little, and gently, as possible and should not be removed from the water.
  7. The catch should be reported at the end of each day of fishing to Logie Estate Office on 01309 611300. If the office is closed, please leave a message on the answering machine with the date, weight and pool. Please also report a nil catch day.
  8. Dogs are allowed on the river but must be kept strictly under control at all times. The Estate reserves the right to ask tenants to remove dogs if they are considered to be out of control.
  9. Rod, line and fly size are dependent on prevailing weather and water conditions and personal choice. In general, maximum rod length needed is 13ft with a size 8 or 9 line, usually floating. Fly sizes range from 6 – 8 in the spring down to 12 or less in summer low water.
  10. Safety must be considered at all times. All beats have a variety of pools with some suitable for most heights of water. Little wading is necessary and river paths are good however the fishing is within the Findhorn gorge, access to some of the pools is quite steep and a degree of rock scrambling is often necessary when playing and landing fish. Please be aware that a reasonable level of fitness and mobility is required. A buoyancy aid for each rod is provided and should be collected from Logie Estate Office on arrival, and returned to the Estate Office (or to the outbuilding opposite if office is closed) on departure. Logie Estate strongly recommends that buoyancy aids are worn when fishing and not doing so is entirely at fishermen’s own risk. Please pay attention at all times, avoid slips and falls, wear appropriate footwear, look out for overhead electricity lines, watch the weather and pay attention to livestock. Take extra care if fishing alone.
  11. Anglers need to supply or hire their own equipment (except buoyancy aids, which are provided).
  12. Ghillieing/tuition is available by on a first come, first served basis. This must be booked in advance with the Estate Office and is subject to availability. A half day ghillieing/tuition is approx. 3 hours, full day approx. 6 hours. Please contact the estate office or check our website for current rates. Rates do not include discretionary tips.
  13. Rod, Reel & Line hire is available by on a first come, first served basis. This must be booked in advance with the Estate Office and is subject to availability. Please contact the estate office or check our website for current rates. A rod, reel and line set is for one person and is subject to a fully refundable damage deposit of £100.
  14. Aside from fishermen, others, including rafters and kayakers, enjoy this stretch of river and mutual respect and consideration is expected.
  15. Bookings are confirmed when initial payment is received. Subsequent changes in dates or number or rods are entirely subject to the Estate’s discretion and to availability. Change of dates, if accepted, incur an administration fee. In the event of a cancellation the tenant must advise Logie Estate immediately, whereupon Logie will endeavour to re-let. If a new tenant can be found the deposit will be returned less any expenses incurred for advertising, office costs, etc., and less any shortfalls in discounted list price. Until such time as a vacancy has been re-let the hirer is responsible for making any further payment by the due dates. Failure to do so may mean that the hirer forfeits any refund if the dates are re-let. If it is not possible to re-let, all payments are still payable by the due date(s). It is unlikely that a refund can be made for a late cancellation. Logie Estate recommends that fishermen take out relevant cancellation insurance.
  16. Subletting fishing is only allowed with Logie Estate’s permission.
  17. Logie Estate reserves the right to immediately withdraw fishing without compensation from anyone who breaks these or associated conditions, or flouts normal standards of behaviour or fishing etiquette.
