    Sauer,
    Ring the FC in your area and ask to be informed if and when any leases become available. Leases run from April- April so once your registered you will be invited to tender on any up and coming lease's. Details are usually released in Feb/March..

    regards

    sauer,

    I think you would need to get in touch with the office at Huntly. There is some ground coming up soon (inside info) and some of it will be in your neck of the woods I think.
