Forestry

2500 acres of forestry within the estate including Montreathmont Forest and some hill woodland above the Montrose basin are managed by a team of two. A Long Term Forest Plan dictates the method of management with contract machinery and labour brought in for the felling process.

The department provides seasoned timber for the biomass and manages the tree planting and planning process within the policies in addition to a small amount of contract work including hedge cutting and fencing.

The stay at Kinnaird Castle was absolutely wonderful and we really enjoyed the ambience. J Gale
