Location

About the surrounding area of Esk Apartment

Esk Apartment is located between the Montrose Basin and Brechin adjoining the river Southesk. The Estate covers some 7,000 acres of low lying land, with a combination of good arable land, forestry and permanent pasture, which has been under the stewardship of the Carnegie family since 1400. The Carnegie family, now Dukes of Fife, have cared for the land for over 600 years, and this stability and care has allowed wildlife to flourish, making for an idyllic escape that feels like a luxurious retreat to any visitors.

There are Farms, Forestry, Game and Fishing departments, that all work together to keep the estate in its exceptional state. Wild habitats, with endless varieties flora and fauna can be found all over the grounds and have to be explored during your stay. The land also includes a Site of Special Scientific Interest on Rossie Moor, an unspoiled lowland moorland that sits on the hill overlooking Montrose. Another Special Area of Conservation on the estate, is the Southesk River, for its salmon and fresh water pearls. The estate also actively participates in the red squirrel project, so if you keep an eye out during your stay, you are likely to spot some of these along with woodpeckers, kingfishers, ospreys, owls and many other bird species.

On top of all the work and diligence put into caring for the natural landscapes and wildlife on the estate, the family has not forgotten the human experience of these spaces. There are miles of paths laid out for you to follow, taking in the breath-taking scenery, follies and views over the river and lake. There are also plenty of walks and cycles that you can discover along the quiet roads of the estate.

Bringing the castle and its grounds into the 21st century, there is a focus on renewable energy. The estate biomass boiler was also built in 2016, as part of a 100kw hydro-electric scheme and is in operation on the river Southesk, offering power to the national grid.

We cannot imagine any children that wouldn’t be impressed by the opportunity to stay in a castle as magnificent as this! Families with kids are among some of the best guests to visit this grand holiday home on the Scottish coast. Esk Castle offers a slice of history, built in the 15th-century, kids can spend their time dreaming up stories and tales of times gone by and the exciting goings on in the castle. As well as a lesson in history, the castle lends itself to a lesson in nature, and kids are sure to love learning about all the wild habitats, flora and fauna in the area.

For kids that love a lot of activity, there is a tennis court for you all to enjoy. The grounds also offers plenty of space to run and play, with picnics and games of hide and seek among our younger guest’s top choices! There are several quiet roads on the estate that lend themselves perfectly to cycling, s we would recommend getting the whole family onto bikes, heading out for an afternoon to explore the many wonders Esk Castle has to offer.

Beyond the castle grounds themselves, there is something to suit everyone in the local area, from the ruined splendour of Edzell and Dunnottar Castles to boating trips from Arbroath harbour, as well as fishing and lighthouse adventures, that are sure to set your children’s imaginations on fire!

Another great activity for our younger guests, is a ride on the Caledonian Steam railway which passes close to the castle and is another fun and memorable way to explore all the best spots and views the area has to offer.
