  • Historic 14th-century castle with original features including stained-glass windows
  • Set on extensive grounds with miles of beautiful river walks
  • The castle has two salmon & trout fishing beats along the River Deveron
Property code: 89020

A much-loved area for fishing, this beautiful area is famous for the River Deveron and its salmon and trout (it holds the record for the heaviest fly-caught salmon in the UK). The castle sits on 450 acres with two salmon fishing beats (permits that can be arranged with the owner) - a great location for fishermen. Friends or families can explore the miles of walks along the riverbanks and everything the area has to offer. It’s just a 13-mile drive to the coast to access the many beaches and the famous ice creams of Cullen & Portsoy, so don’t miss out on this! Take a tour of GlenDronach Distillery, 5.5 miles away, tasting some of their sherry-matured whiskies, and pick up a bottle of your favourite.

Kinnairdy Castle is a tower house with parts dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries. The living areas are homely and cosy but at the same time, boast many of the original features including the stained-glass windows and vaulted ceiling in the dining room, giving it a real castle dining experience. The entrance is via the side door that leads into the kitchen. The kitchen has everything required to cook up a good meal and is a great place to gather for breakfast and chat about the day ahead. There is a small lounge area on the ground floor with a Smart TV which then leads onto the dining room. Host a dinner party for family and friends and enjoy time together around the dining table, and light up the wood burner on those cooler winter nights. There is a WC and utility area next to the stairwell. Take the stairs to the first floor, where you will find the shower room and three beautifully decorated bedrooms: the master bedroom super-king-size, a king-size and a double. The main lounge is accessed by a few steps from the first floor and is in the original tower part of the castle, a great place to read, relax, and unwind, with another wood burner to keep you cosy on colder evenings. On the second floor, you will find a twin bedroom and a bathroom with a beautiful Victorian-style bath.

Outside, there is a large courtyard and garden area with seating and a BBQ, with lots of grassed areas for the children to play.

The castle is set in a much-loved area for fishing, famous for the River Deveron and its salmon and trout (it holds the record for the heaviest fly-caught salmon in the UK). The castle sits on 450 acres with two salmon fishing beats (permits can be arranged with the owner) - so this really is a hard-to-beat location for fishermen.

However, for those in your party that aren’t keen anglers, it's possible simply to explore the miles of walks along the riverbanks. River Deveron is set amongst some dramatic Scottish landscapes and is home to plenty of wildlife, not just fish. Nature lovers will feel right at home here, but those that simply need to get away from it all will be hard-pushed to find a more peaceful location.

It’s just a 13-mile drive to the coast to access the many beaches and the famous ice creams of Cullen and Portsoy, so don’t miss out on this! Scottish beaches may be a bit chilly to swim in, but they’re usually deserted and a fantastic place to head for a day out with a picnic. Perhaps with something that you have picked up on a tour of GlenDronach Distillery, 5.5 miles away. There, you can taste some of their sherry-matured whiskies and pick up a bottle of your favourite.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a fantastic time. V. welcoming host. Definitely a memorable place to stay with a load of history attached. There were five of us and there was plenty of space - including the wonderful sitting room upstairs and the vaulted dining room. The castle was well equipped, and very warm and cozy with the central heating and lRead moreog burners. Our dog loved it too and appreciated the treats in the welcome package! :) Would definitely stay again if we were holidaying in the area. Hide
