The estate’s deer population is controlled by deer stalking. The day man killed the last wolf in Scotland was the day man shouldered the burden of being top predator on the wolf’s prey. Deer are phenomenally successful animals and, as a result, are a problem in land-management terms, in many different countries.
On Kincardine Estate we have Roe Deer and their larger cousins Red Deer. Both can be very damaging to forestry and farming operations. With no natural predators we have to step in and control them through culling. The meat from deer, venison, is truly delicious and is often served at the castle.
