About us

Dronely was founded with the core mission to push the boundaries of how drone and unmanned aerial vehicles can help our clients in a huge number of potential applications.

We are a technology company at heart, and like any technology: how it is implemented and delivered is crucial to its end value. We have backgrounds in media, software, hardware and development; We are serious about good communication, safety, outstanding quality and fully understanding a clients needs so we can truly meet and exceed them.

We are still discovering unique, inventive and effective new ways of using these incredible new technologies. Drones can be intimidating if you have never incorporated them in your work. For an approachable, friendly discussion about how you can get the best out of drones… get in touch, or just say come say hi.

From large complex site inspections (maritime, oil/gas, wind/solar and aviation) with LiDAR or 3D photogrammetry outputs – to simple, beautifully produced video pieces with custom composed audio all using the latest aerial drone technologies. Our team has over 10 years piloting experience and the technical know how to provide bespoke solutions for your needs as well as exceptional video/audio production and post-processing.

Come find out how we can help with any task where previously movement in 3D space required heavy machinery, excessive amounts of time and usually came at great expense. Now there is a new way.

What our partners say about us:

It has been very fortuitous that Dronely appeared on the scene offering efficient and highly professional aerial photography surveys using a drone and producing extremely high quality HD 4K footage just when we had the need to survey some difficult to access buildings.

It has sped up the condition reporting we have been able to deliver to our clients and with Dronely operating UK wide, we had the confidence to use them on a recent high profile project in London.

The service is personal and tailored to our exact requirements, we will be working with Kris, Marco and the team again soon.”

– David Millar (Director & Head of Conservation, Austin-Smith:Lord – Glasgow)


We have used Dronely on some sensitive structures requiring a high level of forethought and planning, in some challenging locations.

The results and the presentation of the results have exceeded our expectations providing a high level of detail that is useful in the assessment and design of repairs and is also a useful presentation tool when demonstrating the need, or not, for structural intervention and repair.

– Clive Dawson (Hockley & Dawson)


It was a pleasure working with Dronely. They were very easy to work with and the outputs produced were very professional and exactly fitted our needs.

– Mike Lees (Perth & Kinross Council)


We engaged Dronely for a complex engineering site monitoring task. Not only did they help make the ongoing work safer for our team on site, Perth & Kinross Council were delighted with the marketing footage produced.  We look forward to working with the Dronely team in our work again very soon.
