Kinblethmont is an historic estate which, with its advantageous elevated position, has been settled since Pictish times. In the centre is the Victorian mansion house surrounded by beautiful policy woodlands where specimen trees and snowdrops abound. Paths take you through the woods past the old pet cemetery, the remains of 16th century Kinblethmont and the walled garden with children’s play area. A longer walk will take you up around the solar park with spectacular views over to the Angus hills and the North Sea.
From Forfar/Brechin, take the A933 towards Arbroath, turn left to Friockheim. Drive through Friockheim and continue along the road, past the crematorium, until you reach a T junction. Turn right and continue along this road, past a crossroads, until you enter Kinblethmont estate on your left.
The estate has some lovely holiday cottages for anyone wanting to make a weekend of it. House tours will also be available, please see website or Facebook for details.
