Kincardine is one of Scotland’s finest Victorian Castles set amidst 3,000 acres in the heart of Royal Deeside.  Built as an ‘entertaining machine’ in the late 1800’s – a job which it does as well today as it did then, Kincardine is a wonderful location for large family gatherings and corporate groups.

Sitting in an elevated position overlooking the River Dee, you will enjoy breath-taking views over Royal Deeside and beyond to the Cairngorms and Lochnagar.

The gardens surrounding the Castle are a delight. Meander through the walled garden with its beautiful Laburnum Walk, as well as their kitchen garden (their chef uses the produce to prepare your delicious meals). Enjoy the woodland garden, with 120 varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas, and the abundant wildflower meadows.

Lots to enjoy in the surrounding area, including Whisky Tasting at the Royal Lochnagar Distillery, fishing on the River Dee, local golf courses include Braemar, Aboyne and Cruden Bay, as well as visiting Balmoral Castle and Crathie Kirk, the church the Royal family use when in Scotland.

Their wonderful team will make sure your stay is enjoyable, providing you with a wonderful dining experience, using the very best local produce.

Accommodation in the castle is let on a fully catered and staffed basis including afternoon tea, a delicious dinner and full cooked breakfast for up to 17 guests.  Additional accommodation for staff is available upon request.

Situated only 40 minutes from Aberdeen Airport, and 30 minutes from Stonehaven Station, both with direct links to London.

We say...

Kincardine Castle is in a magnificent setting and enjoys breathtaking views over Royal Deeside and beyond.

The Bedrooms

The Chinese Bedroom
Single Room with en-suite bathroom with power-shower over bath. Full of antique Chinese furniture the main feature is the extraordinary 18th century ‘drum’ bed. The only example we know of in the UK is in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

Emslie
Twin bedded room with en-suite bathroom with power-shower over bath. Named after the decorator who in 1935 managed to put the wallpaper on inside out. Two comfortable single brass beds. Stunning view over Deeside.

The Garden Room
A family room sleeping 3 with en-suite bathroom with power-shower over bath. Two beds can be made into a super king-sized double. The two west-facing windows overlook the walled garden.

Old King Cole
Twin or double-bedded room with en-suite bathroom with power-shower over bath. The bathroom has fabulous ceramic tiles by William de Morgan. 

The Tower Room
Twin bedded room with en-suite power-shower room. Perched high above the front door this room’s five window give astounding views from east to south-west across Deeside.

The Turret Room
Super-king double bed with en-suite bathroom and power-shower over bath. The twin turrets flank the bed which has a painted headboard formed from the overmantle which was removed from the Drawing Room in 1930. This room is a favourite.

The Queen’s Bedroom
Super-king double four-poster bed with en-suite bathroom with shower over bath. Named in honour of a private visit by members of the Royal Family in 1991. The Queen didn’t spend the night here as her own home is nearby. This room overlooks the entrance drive and five windows give views from north-east to south-west.

Maggies’s Room
Twin/Double bed with en-suite bathroom and power-shower over bath. This room faces south-east and is lovely and bright in the mornings. It has views over the woodland garden and fields. Maggie is the Laird’s sister and this was her room when she grew up at Kincardine.

Nini’s Room
Single bedroom with wash basin and a private bathroom just along the passage. Not one of the main bedrooms it is perfectly comfortable nonetheless. Nini was a former batman (soldier servant).

Edward’s Room
A Queen-sized double bedroom with en-suite shower room.

The Stranger Footman’s Room
A charming single bedroom with a private bathroom just along the passage. On the ground floor. Stranger Footmen were not even weirder than normal footmen – they were visiting staff brought by guests.
