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…
“We had such a lovely stay at the castle for the Luthman/Snell wedding. The breakfasts, cocktail hours and our dinner on Sunday evening were all equally wonderful and fit for Royalty! Thank you so much for the hospitality and making us feel so welcome in your castle-home”. April 2016
