HRN Tractors Ltd was founded by the Barclay family in 1980. The Barclay family is a well known and respected family throughout the farming community up and down the country.
Harry Barclay and his son Neil Barclay founded HRN Tractors in 1980. The Barclays began by selling used machinery to both the home and export market before the opportunity arose to acquire the John Deere franchise. They now have strong relationships with many other well known manufacturers.
As well as the agricultural machinery side of the business they also farm over 2000 arable acres and rear both commercial and Pedigree cattle herds – Harestone Charolais.
HRN Tractors continued to expand and in 2001 Neil’s son, Stuart Barclay, joined the family business.
We try wherever possible to ensure that the needs and expectations of our customers are met at all times therefore we rely on our team of experienced staff. To this end we are very fortunate that some members of our staff have been with the company for many years.
Insch, Aberdeenshire was the first depot opened and is HRN’s largest depot. Headed by General Manager Hamish Bruce, who also manages HRN’s other locations. HRN Tractors Sales Team is well respected within the farming community. Hamish and his staff have built an enviable reputation of being able to supply new and used equipment to HRN’s customers at market leading prices. Insch may only be a small village but the nearby train station allows connection to Aberdeen Airport which is only 30 minutes away.

Our Balbeggie depot in Perthshire was formerly known as Earnvale Tractors. Although they have been established for over 40 years, they have been part of the HRN family controlled company, since 1982 when it was purchased from the Guinness Group. Earnvale Tractors relocated to a purpose built depot in 1999 which now includes a combine storage shed. The Harvest Centre, which was built in 2008, has since been increased to double the original size and can now house 20 combines undercover.
