Scottish estate with private beach

The Kinloch Estate is a wonderful mixed-use productive estate which comes with an elegant country property and sporting use within an hour of Aberdeen. The primary residence is an elegant Category C listed country house dating back to the 1820s. Recently renovated, the house retains a good deal of period features but remains eminently suited to modern living.

Accommodation is spread over two floors and includes a separate, interconnected annexe built from a converted outbuilding. The house has an entrance vestibule, drawing room, sun parlour, dining room, snug, bright family kitchen, cloakroom and laundry room on the ground floor; the first floor houses the master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms, while the annexe offers a hallway with study, kitchen and two en-suite bedrooms.

Outside, the extensive outbuildings include garaging and storage, kennels a flat and a greenhouse, while the gardens surrounding the house are pretty and well-maintained. To the front and east they are mainly laid to lawn, with plants and shrubs providing a blaze of colour in summer and autumn; to the west lies the woodland.

Kinloch Farm (lot 2) includes a newly refurbished cottage but does still need some work. The are also a number of good farm buildings and a loch which extends to some 12 acres and has the potential to provide an exciting sporting opportunity. The farmland in lot 1 extends to around 529 acres and includes the loch. Lot 2 includes South Kirkton Farmhouse, outbuildings, gardens grounds and 618 acres of farmland including 212 acres of stunning sand duns and two miles of private beach.

As a whole, Kinloch is regarded as one of the most highly-prized low ground shoots in the area. The current owners have worked hard on this element and the estate currently offers around 20 high quality shoot days per year.

Kinloch is situated in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire on Scotland’s north east coast, just south of the small village of St Fergus and four miles north of Peterhead, stretching inland for nearly two miles from the sea.
