Farming & Estates Services
The catalyst for the expansion of our farming interests was a move by Ian and Hardie Brown in 1955 from Carnock Mill Farm in Fife to Innergask Farm in Perthshire. Their initial 90 acres has grown to around 6,800 acres in Perthshire, Fife and East Lothian. The main crops grown are spring barley and winter wheat to supply the Scottish malting and distilling industries. We also grow potatoes, oil seed rape, vining peas, winter barley and temporary grass for grazing livestock and cutting for silage or hay. While we embrace modern farming practices to improve our efficiency, we are acutely aware of the environmental fragility of our land. We continually strive to ensure that our quest to improve the land for future generations is pursued sustainably and in an environmentally sensitive manner. We pride ourselves in our long history of supplying quality produce to the British food and drinks industry.
The company owns and manages over 20,000 acres of Scottish upland, which encompasses heather, moorland, trees, grasslands and several Munros.
Kingie estate in Glengarry, extending to 17,500 acres, is situated amongst a magnificently scenic and remote part of the west coast. The estate is still maintained as a traditional sporting estate and employs local people. Since 1989, sustainable deer management has been our core emphasis and this is achieved through collaboration with an association of neighbouring estates. Management practices embrace new technology whilst striving to conserve the manmade, natural and social environment. Kingie also offers quality accommodation and some of the finest deer stalking in Scotland for let.
Moness estate, located in the beautiful countryside around Aberfeldy is a more recent addition. It has over 2,500 acres of commercial woodland and open hill. Grouse, roe and red deer can be found thriving on the estate. The estates are both producers of prime quality Scottish venison.
Kingie Estate is situated in magnificent highland scenery on the south side of Loch Quoich. Located around 40 miles north of Fort William and 50 miles west of Inverness, Kingie boasts stunning views of rivers, glens and mountains in an area of truly wild beauty.
Loch Quoich stretches for 9 miles and its mirror-like surface reflects the splendour of the surrounding landscape. Across Loch Quoich, Kingie’s deer forest is home not only to red deer but other wildlife such as golden eagles. Neighbouring forests include Achnacarry, Knoydart, Glendessary, Barisdale and Glen Quoich. Dramatic coastal scenery can be found at Kinloch Hourn, only a short drive from Kingie.
