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.

Some kind words from our previous guests…
“Thank you so much Andrew & Nicky for making our daughter’s wedding the most amazing fairytale wedding any bride could hope for. Thank you for taking so much off Doreen’s and my hands given that we had to arrange a wedding with 2 weeks notice given Doreen’s health. Everything was just perfect and we shall never be able to thank you enough.”
