There is a considerable amount of public access on the estate.


There are numerous walks on the estate. A favourite for those living in Kincardine O’Neil is a walk down by the river Dee and through the Boat Wood.


Kincardine Estate has had an association with Mar Orienteering Club lasting for more than quarter of a century. Several events are held annually in the estate’s Sluie Woods and the estate has been host to competitions including National and World Championships.

Off-road Driving

Kincardine Estate works with Buchan Off-Roaders who use our Sluie Woods for their fun and games which includes a form of cross-country navigation not wholly dissimilar to orienteering but with the punch cards attached to wing-mirrors which means that you have to get the vehicle within a very short distance of the control points.

Trail Riding

Kincardine Estate works with Bon-Accord Motorcycle Club who use our Sluie Woods for Trial Riding.


You may note that Sluie Wood are used as a location for all three of these organised groups  The woods are also used for Deer Stalking and, of course, for timber production. Naturally we coordinate so that the diaries don’t clash. We are currently troubled by illegal motorised access to our woods. Given the variety of activities going on there we are concerned that illegal access will result in injury or worse.

Open Days at the Castle:

The castle is normally not open to the public. However we do open a pop-up lunch and afternoon tea-time restaurant on the First Friday of most months. Booking is essential.

During the year there are a number of public Open Events held at or in the grounds of the castle. To find out about these sign up to our monthly newsletter or see our Events Page.

Some kind words from our previous guests…

“Sincere thanks for all your hospitality, and for those thoughtful touches; a quilt for a sleepy six-year-old; a little chat with someone sitting alone; deep local knowledge that helps tease out a memory from another.”
