Kingairloch has been in the care of the Yeoman and Larson family since the early 1980’s. The late John Yeoman was looking for a site for a coastal quarry and he looked at the neighbouring Glensanda, which was owned by the late Mrs Patricia Strutt who also owned Kingairloch. Mrs Strutt sold Glensanda to John Yeoman, owner of Foster Yeoman Ltd and he developed the coastal quarry until his untimely death in 1987.
Mrs Strutt decided that after a Strutt association of 98 years with Kingairloch, she would like the family company of Foster Yeoman Ltd to purchase Kingairloch, which was agreed in 1989. Mrs Strutt retained the management of Kingairloch until her death in 2001.
In 1996 the Larson family moved to Home Farm and Susan Larson (daughter of John and Angela Yeoman) started an agreed process of restoring the properties on Kingairloch. The premise behind the restoration projects was to achieve a time when Kingairloch could stand-alone and be financially viable. Foster Yeoman Ltd was sold in 2006 and Mrs Angela Yeoman and Mrs Susan Larson bought Kingairloch Estate to take it forward into the future. Although tourism plays a major role at Kingairloch, the estate has diversified into renewable energy, commercial and native forest whilst maintaining traditions as being a magnificent deer forest offering first class red deer stalking. Susan lives at Kingairloch and her daughter Katrina manages the self-catering bookings and the online aspects of the estate.
Through forward thinking and diversification into different industries, it has become a wonderful place to holiday on the West Coast of Scotland. As you will see from the timeline below, we continually invest in the estate to safeguard it for our future generations.
