Kinclune is a working farm. We breed cattle, ponies and sheep and they can be protective of their young. You cannot walk, particularly with dogs, in fields with livestock and we ask you to avoid the farmyard and farm machinery.
If you sign up for one of our guided walking tours and we will show you the best and safest places to walk on Kinclune and share what's special about our award winning environment. We run part of the farm as a nature reserve for rare birds and we would love to show you where to see the best of our wildlife without disturbing it.
Yes, you can meet the ponies and farm animals. We have been breeding cattle and ponies for more than 3 generations and our Scottish native Highland ponies are award winning.
We would love to show you our ponies and livestock on our farm safari tours or on one of our other experiences and activities. Please see our experiences page and do contact us if you have any bespoke requirements for your experience.
Kinclune organic farm is a working farm, rather than a petting-farm as such. Our ponies live outdoors year-round mostly on Kinclune Hill or in our conservation grazed grassland and wetlands. We love to show them off in their natural environment.
What our Customers Say
Thank you for the wonderful house and hospitality. This weekend has been precious. The scenery, wildlife, ‘Fandango’ the Highland pony and the chanterelle mushrooms – all good!
A truly fantastic short break. What a great setting to come and unwind from our troubles. Kinclune House was just what we needed. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy everything about it. The fire in the drawing room was perfect to end the night on.
Fabulous stay in a beautiful house. The photos don't do it justice. The views are breathtaking!

Thank you very much for a beautiful stay at Kinclune House. We absolutely loved the views. It was such a treat to see the ponies and get a walk of the hills. The games room was just perfect for rainy days. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!
What a beautiful place God has blessed you with! You have been so good to us this weekend. I loved the views, the tour of the farm, the horses and the swimming. Thank you for a great time!
Thank you for a lovely stay. Lots of extra thoughtful touches and time taken to explain and help us. The house and proximity to the ponies, cows and sheep, as well as the views were wonderful.
This is a wonderful getaway to escape from worry and troubles. Kinclune House was luxurious and I found it very peaceful and beautiful. I loved walking around with my camera, enjoying the scenic landscape. Scotland is beautiful. I also appreciated learning about all the nature conservation projects the owners are working on.
I couldn’t have had a better place for a nice weekend getaway. The scenery at Kinclune is therapeutic and the interior of the house is welcoming, homely and luxurious. I had an amazing time swimming in open water at Backwater Reservoir. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone, especially those planning an intimate destination wedding.
We stayed in Kinclune House for the Christmas holidays and enjoyed every second of it. Whether sitting by the fire next to the beautifully decorated Christmas tree or just looking at the gorgeous views, Kinclune House brings peace to the soul.
