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 can’t thank you enough or begin to relate our thanks and appreciation for sharing your beautiful home. Never could we have imagined that our own fairy tale wedding could be this magical, and you both have been key to creating this for us. Our memories will last a life-time and forever we will hold a very dear place in our hearts for Kincardine and the gracious hosts who made our dreams come true. Thank you so very much.” Sept. 2017
