Kinnaird Castle, Brechin, is home to the Earl and Countess of Southesk. The castle has been in the family for over 600 years and lies amidst 1300 acres of magnificent walled parkland nestled between the unspoiled Angus coastline and the gently rolling glens.

Most of the second floor of the castle has been transformed into two luxuriously appointed holiday apartments, which can be enjoyed in every season. Opportunities for sightseeing and golf abound in this largely undiscovered and sunny county. Many guests never want to leave the estate itself, embarking on miles of varied walks through open countryside and woodlands dotted with follies, watching rare natural species and enjoying the tremendous fishing and shooting. We hope that you will want to come and find out for yourself!
