Airlie Estate lies on the Southern side of the Angus Glens spanning the magnificent Glen Clova, Glen Moy and part of Glen Prosen, as far as Balmoral to the North. There is over 30,000 acres of, what has been quoted as, one of the finest sporting estates in Scotland.
It has been in the Earl of Airlie’s family ownership since the 12th century and prides itself on its quality of sport and scenery. Airlie is a beautiful private castle commanding an elevated position above the river below. The Castle is steeped in history and was burnt to the ground by the Earl of Argyll 1632. Then in 1746 King George II confiscated Airlie following the Jacobite Rebellion. Lord Airlie was eventually allowed to return from exile in Versailles half a century later and reclaim his family seat and rebuild its charred remains.
Within the grounds there is a large walled garden, tennis court, a grassy area with football goal post and miles of beautiful walks. Trout and salmon fishing and nearby stalking is available by arrangement.
Situated just 20 minutes from the coast and has easy access to golf courses such as Carnoustie, St Andrews or nearby Rosemount at Blairgowrie.
There is a cottage adjoining the main castle that can sleep 4 and would be ideal for extra capacity or for staff – included in rental. Rental includes 3 hours housekeeping each day.
Available on a self-catered basis.
Short Breaks available upon request.
