Dalhousie Estates comprise three landholdings in the County of Angus, at Brechin, Edzell and Invermark. The Brechin Castle and the spectacular Castle Gardens have been in the Dalhousie family since the 17th Century. Dalhousie Estates extend to cover 50,000 acres of countryside from rich farmland at Brechin and Edzell to the Invermark Estate at the head of Glenesk, largely now within the Cairngorms National Park Authority area. Traditional land uses are now blended with initiatives to support climate change and biodiversity loss, including peatland restoration, riparian woodland planting, and a clear focus on wildlife and natural habitat.
Dalhousie Estates wish to participate in the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital in order to both contribute and learn from the network involved, and thus support the strategic framework to make the impacts necessary across rural Scotland.
