Extending in all to some 9,309 acres, (3,767 hectares) Kinrara Estate lies in Upper Speyside and forms part of the renowned Monadhliath range of hills. The southern part of the estate lies within the Cairngorm National Park. The estate is complemented by the comfortable six bedroom Lynwilg House and seven further houses and cottages. It is a wonderful, mixed, all round estate, offering great amenity and scope, underpinned by good housing, farming, significant forestry and sporting activities.

The local area includes habitats designated as both special areas of conservation and special protection
areas, given the outstanding flora and fauna. The estate also includes areas designated as sites of special scientific interests for upland birch woodland and moth assemblage and wetland and breeding birds. There is considerable scope for potentially valuable carbon capture opportunity.
The nearest town is Aviemore, about 3 miles to the north east, which has a wide range of facilities
including a mainline railway station with a sleeper service to London. Inverness, about 33 miles to the
north, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and
Rothiemurchus, Loch Insh and the Cairngorms Ski Centre are nearby and offer diverse activities
throughout the year as does the surrounding countryside and the numerous mountain ranges.
Kinrara is an all-round estate, offering great amenity, recreation, conservation, forestry, farming and sporting opportunities.
Speyside is of significant ecological and environmental importance characterised by great biodiversity and extensive areas of ancient native woodland. Iconic species include a wide variety of flora and fauna - such as blackcock, capercaillie, red squirrel, wildcat and the very rare freshwater pearl mussel.
Occupying some of the UK’s most sensitive and important habitats, Kinrara offers a rare opportunity to own and play a key role in the ongoing stewardship of this stunning landscape. It also offers very considerable afforestation potential, and its extensive areas of peatland, could be a significant asset in the quickly developing carbon economy.
The low ground is gently undulating and sits at around 250m above sea level. It extends from pasture to the south and east of Loch Alvie to the farmland around Ballinluig to the north of the A9.
The moorland stretches from the lower slopes of the Monadhliaths in a north westerly direction towards the central part of the Monadhliath hills, rising to the 824M summit of the ridge between the valleys of the Spey and the river Dulnain, an important tributary of the river Spey. Much of the grouse shooting and red deer stalking takes place on either side of this picturesque spate river.
The estate is some 9 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point and it has an excellent network of well-maintained internal farm and hill roads which allow easy and speedy access to all parts.
