About the Farm
Can we walk on the farm?

Kinclune is a working farm. Ideally, sign up for one of our Experiences, such as the Farm Safari (trailer tour) and we will show you the best bits of Kinclune and show you where it is safe to walk. We breed cattle, ponies and sheep and they can be protective of their young. Do not walk dogs in fields with livestock. We run part of the farm as a nature reserve for rare birds and we would love to show you where you can see our wildlife, including the Ospreys, with the minimum disturbance.


What Our Customers Say

Family reunion with 4-year-olds to 77ers. Terrific venue. Weather was grey but the house made up for it. Very welcoming and a beautiful estate. Lots of laughter and memories made. Osprey fighting the crows each morning and squirrels in the trees. Good lunch at Peel Farm. Kids loved feeding the lambs.

The Macdonald Family et alTarbet, Edinburgh, Dundee & Aberdeen, May 2024

We had a wonderful gathering in this beautifully furnished & decorated house - a tasteful blend of old & modern. Luxurious bedrooms & bathrooms, with beds so comfortable we didn't want to get up. We loved the red squirrels, the red kite & the panoramic views. Thank you, Aylwin & family, for a memorable holiday.

The Blair FamilyFebruary 2024

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.

The Melville FamilyScotland, December 2023

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!

E and A MartinAberdeen, October 2023

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! 

J and L MartinOctober 2023

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! 

Leonie CowieLondon / Jamaica / Auchenblae, September 2023

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.

OgoAberdeen / Nigeria, September 2023

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!
