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 places 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…
“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
