We are specialists in aerial video and photography. Our expert drone pilots pride themselves on providing reliable data that is of the highest quality to both business and private clients alike. From a simple photo or map to a complex point cloud, we’re sure we can assist you with your project

What We Do

From our well-appointed offices, we can cover a larger area of the UK, offering a wide range of services to suit the individual needs of each project that we undertake. Our pilots are fully qualified and have a wealth of experience in both the drone industry as well as planning and construction, when it comes to capturing client data no one has the knowledge or experience that we do.

Prior to the commencement of each job that we undertake, we will carry out a full and detailed risk assessment to ensure that your safety is never compromised.

Through innovation, commitment and keeping up to date with the latest technology, we are able to continue to develop new ways to utilise our enterprise aerial drones and demonstrate how efficient they can be and how they greatly reduce any potential safety concerns for employees by using aerial drones for surveys and inspections. By monitoring your assets, this will allow vital maintenance to be carried out and minimizing down time.

Going The Extra Mile

Our goal with every project, is to capture data and content beyond what other companies can offer. We believe in going the extra mile to ensure that the data that we capture is the very best that it can be.

As a smaller independent company, we understand just how important customer service is, and we treat all of our clients, from large companies to individuals, with the same courtesy. You can be assured that you will only receive the highest level of service from SR Aerial Drone Services. Your files will be delivered on time and at a rate that is highly competitive.

We contacted Scott and requested his help with identifying the extent of crop damage during
this year’s harvest, due to inclement weather. During their visit they also managed to film new
implements that were on demonstration within our contracting side of the business.





We offer a huge range of services in Scotland. Please don’t hesitate to get in contact
should you require a drone related service that we don’t talk about below.

Digital Mapping

We can produce 2D or 3D topographic mapping to suit any project. Using a drone means your data will be delivered faster with more data points than a conventional survey. 

3D Models

Our 3D models allow anyone to understand even the most complex site with ease. Contact us today to find out how a digital model or physical 3D printed model can benefit you or your client.

Volumetric Calculations

Our methods have been independently proven to be up to 99% accurate, contact us today to
find out how we can help with your stockpile management, earthworks, cut & fill, etc.

Photo & Video

We can provide construction progress updates, promotional content, events photography and more. All our drones are equipped with 4K cameras that produce stunning photo and video to fit your needs.

Cut & Fill

The wide variety of outputs from our drone surveys allows integration to software such as Autodesk Civil 3D and N4ce. We can use this data to provide you with cut & fill volumes for a site we’ve surveyed.


Our drones give us the capability to inspect normally inaccessible areas, providing high resolution imagery for inspecting you or your client’s assets. We can also provide live video feeds accessible to anyone with an internet connection.


From missing persons to heat loss reports, our thermal drones provide a new dimension of photography. Find out how thermal imaging can benefit you or your client today.
