Our dedicated energy department provides the full range of non-domestic energy services across Scotland. Allied with our local residential offices, we can also offer domestic energy assessments.

Energy is high on the agenda of many businesses, particularly self-catering accommodation operators, where the industry is seeing notable changes in regulatory requirements but also aims to meet the green credentials holidaymakers seek from accommodation providers.

Legionella Risk Assessments

We are accredited to carry out Legionella Risk Assessments (LRA) for properties that require them. The LRAs have a lifespan of two years and mentions the condition of water tanks, taps and shower heads. Risks are numbered on a scale with zero being no risk.


Business rates has the potential to represent one of the largest overheads for small businesses such as self-catering accommodation operators.

With on-going plans for a review of the system, the landscape for business rates in Scotland is in a state of flux. It is essential that business operators know where they stand now and where they might find themselves in the future.
