Additional Statement By Sammy Leslie
About the future, Leslie said, "Like my father I strongly believe that we neither inherit nor own lands, we are just guardians doing our best for future generations.

Leslie added, "I would like to say a huge thanks to every member of our incredible team (both past and present), all our loyal customers and our wonderful suppliers. I would also like to acknowledge the extended Leslie family and the work of The Castle Leslie Trust. In 2017 we established The Leslie Foundation. The foundation was founded to ensure that the wide social and economic benefits created by Castle Leslie Estate will continue and expand for generations to come.
