About the Farm
Can we walk on the farm?

Kinclune is a working farm. Ideally, sign up for one of our guided walking tours and we will show you the best and safest places to walk around Kinclune and explain how to behave around our livestock and wildlife. 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 without disturbing it.

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.

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!

MelissaAberdeen, September 2023

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.

R and A MartinScotland, October 2023

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.

Yesenia Veracruz, Mexico, 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

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.
