Description

A majestic and historic building lying between the Angus Glens and unspoiled coastline

This outstanding castle apartment sleeps 16 people and can be your home for a group of friends and family for the week or weekend. Set in 1,300 acres of superb landscaped grounds with a deer-park, this impressive castle, built in the 1790s, is a magnificent landmark in the Angus countryside. As castles to stay in Scotland goes, this is a fine example.

This apartment is located on the first and second floor on the west and south facing corner, and is accessed by a separate internal staircase. With a separate dining room and a large sitting room, with an open fire, there is plenty of space for your group. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished, including a four poster bedroom. 

The castle has two very spacious apartments (one sleeping 10 and the other sleeping 6) that can be linked together to sleep up to 16 or booked independently to sleep 10 or 6.  

A tennis court is available to use, as well as access to areas on this private estate which is not open to the public. This is a wonderful private space and grounds to be based to explore some of the best parts of Scotland within Angus and Aberdeenshire.

    The dining room is an elegant room, with a large table that can seat your group in comfort and style, and always looks great in a formal setting with candles. The kitchen is a functional kitchen, with everything you would expect to find, a cooker, microwave, dishwasher and upright fridge freezer. It is adequately equipped and you will a table and chairs in here, so breakfast can be taken in here or less formal dining.

Guestbook

24 June 2018
Rated 5 out of 5

Kinnard Castle is a majestic castle tucked away in beautiful woodlands - a haven for wildlife. The castle, its décor and the grounds speak for itself - an amazing place of beauty. The extensive gardens and woodlands can be seen from the apartment where you can watch deer, pheasants, squirrels and rabbits - just magical. From the moment we arrived at the gatehouse and started the drive to the castle we were in awe.

Kinnard Castle is a very special place offering a sense of royalty. Entrance via the romantic courtyard leads you to the stairs of the apartment. All rooms have impressive period detail, they are comfortable, cosy and have the most amazing fireplaces. You have to see it to believe it.

We can't wait to return.

We agree, its a stunning place, I'll pass your comments to the owner who will be delighted to hear you had such a great time

Excellent and efficient service.

Thanks so much, look forward to welcoming you back to Scotts.
