Andrew Bradford has farmed at Kincardine Estate since 1976 and in 1979 he took over the day-to-day management of the whole estate. It is a varied job which today comprises the management of 70 houses, some shops, offices and workshops, a quarry, 1,500 acres of forestry, farming, tenant farming, salmon fishing, game shooting, gardening and the estate maintenance and hospitality businesses.
Nicola Bradford, mother of three, has been the chatelaine of Kincardine Castle since 1984 and is heavily involved in running the corporate entertainment business. In 2008 she started the food business, Kincardine Kitchen.
Both Andrew and Nicola have dedicated their lives to Kincardine Castle & Estate and thoroughly enjoy sharing it with their guests. The special delight of Kincardine is the fact that you are not only entering a fine country house but that you are spending time with the Laird and his family.
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.”
