The estate lies on the river Southesk, one of the foremost Scottish salmon rivers. The estate has three fishing beats near the mouth of the river and there is an opportunity to take this for the day or week depending on the beat.

Kinnaird also boasts a long established and well-respected shoot, mainly within walking distance of the castle. We can cater for every standard of shooting ability and can offer several consecutive days of sport.

For those wanting other activites there are golf courses suitable for every level of golfer.  For walkers, the glens of Angus offer some of the prettiest scenery in Scotland, gentle bracken covered hills with birch copses stretching up to the Highlands. Best of all is that they are not overcrowded with tourists. If more dramatic scenery is sought, Royal Deeside is just 45 minutes drive over the Cairn O’ Mount and the ski resorts are easily accessible. (Glenshee is just over one hour away.)

Angus is one of the least known (and therefore unspoiled) areas of Scotland. Kinnaird is only 5 minutes from the underused coastline with miles and miles of sandy beaches and dunes. Birdwatchers with be impressed by the variety of species at all times of the year. The Montrose Basin - just 2 miles away - is home to a diverse and changing wildlife through all seasons.

Paintballing, riding,and 4x4 activities can also be found nearby.

There are several stately homes open to the public nearby including Glamis Castle, the House of Dun, Edzell Castle, Brechin Castle and Dunninald. There is a tennis court at the castle and this is available on request. There is also a variety of fishing options both on the estate and on nearby rivers and lochs.
