One of the “most sought after and accessible sporting estates in Scotland” has gone on sale - for the modest asking price of £9.6 million.

Kinnaird Estate in Perthshire is being marketed for sale by Bidwells.

The 6,000-acre property includes 15 additional estate houses and cottages from which a holiday lettings business is run.

Rebecca Boswell of Bidwells said the sale “presents a very rare opportunity to buy one of the most sought after and accessible sporting estates in Scotland”.

She said it “has great diversity with a range of land types, income streams, sporting and residential assets”.

The Courier helpfully suggests that the offer could appeal to Downton Abbey fans ahead of the show’s return to TV this month.
