Kinnaird Estate is unique amongst many Scottish Stalking estate’s in that it is home to 3 out of the 4 deer species resident on Scotland, and can offer stalking for Red, Roe and Fallow deer.The stalking ground extends to around 7000 acres comprising lowland arable ground bounded by the river Tay rising to the gentle slopes many of which contain historically significant ancient junipers growing amongst the native broadleaf birch and beech woodlands, which eventually give way to the open hill.
The stunning scenery and well managed wild deer population means we can offer some of the finest stalking in Central Scotland. Since the estate changed hands in 2016, the current owner had embarked upon an ambitious and careful plan to restore the estate to its former glory with management of the estate deer following an ethical and sustainable management plan. All our venison enters the food chain.
