    A dream venue in a picture postcard Scottish setting, Kinnettles Castle is simply glorious.

    Approached via a long driveway past the enchanting two-bedroomed Gate Lodge (available for self-catering rental), this 19th-century Victorian castle majestically emerges amidst 44 acres of rolling Angus countryside.

    Located just 15 minutes north of Dundee and 25 minutes west of the coast, the castle is conveniently accessed from Dundee’s airport as well as Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and is available for exclusive use, corporate events, house parties and weddings.

    The interior features a contemporary design that incorporates original grand fireplaces and ornate plasterwork and comprises a Drawing Room, Dining Room, two Games Rooms, Billiard Room and nine guest rooms.

    Board meetings and intimate wedding breakfasts for 30 can be held within the Dining Room whilst larger events take place in the extensive acres where a marquee for 250 can be erected.

    In these wonderful grounds, team building exercises and activities such as clay pigeon shooting, archery and falconry can be enjoyed. For something different, sign up for a Kinnettles’ all-inclusive themed house party to partake in a personal development course or learn a new hobby.
