Welcome to NFU Mutual Thainstone agency where we provide a personal and individually tailored general insurance, financial services and health & safety risk management service to our customers.

Our traditional client base consists mainly of businesses and individuals associated with the agricultural industry located across a vast area north of the river Don, from Inverurie to the Fraserburgh and Peterhead coastline.

However, over recent years we have successfully expanded into other areas of commercial and personal insurance and now provide a local, personal, relationship focussed service to a wider market across the region.

We believe our way of doing business sets us apart from other companies in our field. So why not contact us directly for a quote or initial discussion, by phone, or via the messaging link on this web page.

Whether you are an individual or a business, our new team of friendly staff will be delighted to discuss your general insurance, financial services or risk management needs.

Stephen Hepburn

Senior Agent & Group Secretary

I joined NFU Mutual Thainstone in September 2020. Whilst brought up on a farm, up until this point in my career most of my working life has been spent in financial services and banking, although latterly I’ve done business advisory work. Through my career I’ve built up an understanding of all business sectors across the North East of Scotland and look forward to bringing this experience to the agency. I am currently building up my insurance licences and plan to specialise in dealing with larger business insurance connections across the farms & estates, food & drink, hospitality & leisure, manufacturing, retail, business services, wholesale & distribution and commercial property sectors. On the NFU Scotland side of the role I am joint group secretary for the Central Aberdeenshire & Buchan branches.
