About Harriet Cross

Harriet Cross is a Chartered Rural Surveyor, working across Aberdeenshire and the Highlands. Her work gets her to the heart of Gordon & Buchan, working with farmers, landowners and rural communities in matters ranging from valuations to infrastructure schemes. 

Harriet lives in Aberdeenshire with her partner Tom, a geologist, and black labrador Mia. Having grown up in the Republic of Ireland, Harriet moved in Aberdeenshire in her mid-teens when her father took over the running of the community pharmacy in Braemar. She studied Zoology at Imperial College London, followed by a Masters Degree in Rural Land & Business Management at the University of Reading, where she graduated with Distinction. Having completed her graduate training programme, gaining her chartership in Cambridge, Harriet returned home to Aberdeenshire in 2018. 

Harriet spends as much time as she can in the hills around Aberdeenshire. She is a keen runner and hill walker and believes that fresh air and switching off from the media for a few hours is the key to a balancing a busy life.

In recent years, Harriet has stood in the Scottish Parliament Elections and Local Government Elections. She is a confident public speaker, having spoken at a number of conferences, husting events and also on BBC Debate Night and live radio.

Harriet is determined to see the promises made to the residents and businesses in Gordon & Buchan in recent years upheld – In particular the dualling of the A96, upgrades to the A90 and the re-opening of Insch Hospital. More broadly, she wants to see the farmers across Aberdeenshire supported in their primary aim – feeding the nation – and hopes to build on the strong relationship with the sector she has built thought her day job. Harriet will support the Oil & Gas sector and the tens of thousands of workers it employers during its transitions to cleaner greener energy technologies.
