"Our heritage is ancient but our outlook is modern..."
Glendye is a long-established sporting estate which covers over 20,000 acres of spectacular, unspoiled, natural wilderness in the north-east of Scotland which combines moorland, lowland and hill farming and managed forestry.
The estate is owned and managed by the great, great grandson of 19th Century Prime Minister William Gladstone. Under his stewardship the estate combines a fine sporting tradition – offering shooting and stalking – with a new modern outlook which welcomes visitors to stay at Balbegno Castle and enjoy the immersive experience of walking, running, orienteering, cycling or camping in this unique environment. Both Glendye and Balbegno offer unique location opportunities (see our Gallery). The estate is also home to a residential and farming community
