There is a considerable amount of public access on the estate.


There are numerous walks on the estate. A favourite for those living in Kincardine O’Neil is a walk down by the river Dee and through the Boat Wood.


Kincardine Estate has had an association with Mar Orienteering Club lasting for more than quarter of a century. Several events are held annually in the estate’s Sluie Woods and the estate has been host to competitions including National and World Championships.

Off-road Driving

Kincardine Estate works with Buchan Off-Roaders who use our Sluie Woods for their fun and games which includes a form of cross-country navigation not wholly dissimilar to orienteering but with the punch cards attached to wing-mirrors which means that you have to get the vehicle within a very short distance of the control points.

Trail Riding

Kincardine Estate works with Bon-Accord Motorcycle Club who use our Sluie Woods for Trial Riding.


You may note that Sluie Wood are used as a location for all three of these organised groups – naturally we coordinate so that the diaries don’t clash. The woods are also used for Deer Stalking and, of course, for timber production.

Open Days at the Castle:

During the year there are a number of public Open Events held at or in the grounds of the castle – see our Events Page.
