About Forbes of Kingennie
Country Holidays & Leisure Breaks in Scotland
Forbes of Kingennie Lodges have much to offer visitors of all ages, whether looking for pure relaxation or activity-packed holidays in Scotland. We are the ideal touring base, being virtually at the geographical ‘hub’ of Scotland in Angus near Dundee and Tayside, with the most extraordinary variety of wonderful scenery on our doorstep.
Angus is a superb location for fantastic Highland and east coast touring. Breathtaking scenery, majestic mountains not far away, the stunning Angus Glens, imposing castles and an abundance of wildlife will make your stay unforgettable. Perthshire – ‘all of Scotland’ – is less than an hour away.
The area provides a wealth of outdoor activities and leisure facilities, including some of the best walking, golf, fishing, boating and riding anywhere in Scotland – and sensational adventure and water sports. There are many places of historical and archaeological interest to visit, a wide range of cultural experiences and excellent local cuisine to enjoy. And it’s an ideal base for touring, only 2 hours’ drive from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen, as well as being just 6 miles outside Dundee.
One of the very best destinations for family holidays in Scotland and short breaks
Forbes of Kingennie Lodges are available for short let, as well as longer stays making our accommodation an outstanding destination base for rewarding self catering short breaks, weekend breaks and leisure breaks in stunning Highland Perthshire. Our lodges can be booked to arrive on any day and are available for a minimum of 3 night stays. The Leannan Boathouse and Kingennie Court can often be booked for 1 or 2 nights also, please check our online booking system for availability and price.
And for those looking for a leisurely 'time snack’, the area is tailor-made for long, leisurely, easy walks and some great pony trekking – and is an art lover's and photographer's paradise. See, smell, taste and feel the magic of this beautiful unspoilt area. Picnic by loch sides, or on the hillsides and mountain tops. We supply excellent picnic and packed lunches. Enjoy a leisurely game of golf, unhurried and not hassled by the queues and 5 hour rounds characteristic of many golf courses these days. Clear light, pure air and a timeless, almost therapeutic, atmosphere of peace, serenity and tranquillity reign here.
Or simply laze around in the resort for a while, meeting new friends, renewing auld acquaintances or enjoying a good book. For heritage lovers, peek back into history and recapture, if only momentarily, the events of the past in a part of Scotland which captivated the historic figures who made Scotland great.
Our great on-site leisure includes our maze, children’s playpark – and our famous Cairngorms Putting Green.
