We like to think our guests have the best of times at Forbes of Kingennie Country Resort, no matter what they’ve come to us to enjoy, and - from the look of some recent holiday reviews, wedding reviews and golf and fishing reviews – our guests agree. Read what they think below.
Thank you for a successful family golf tournament. Everyone had a great time, really enjoyed the venue and the meal was super. The golfers found the course to be challenging yet manageable and had a fantastic game. I understand that next years’ organiser is keen to do it again at Kingennie. The staff were fabulous.
Just a short note to thank you for your involvement with our wedding reception on the 13th July. The staff at Forbes of Kingennie made the preparations stress-free and enjoyable. The tables looked great and the food and service were exactly what we had hoped for! We loved our ceremony beforehand and the photos, meal, and honeymoon all went smoothly.
Please extend our thanks to the staff involved in the day.
Duncan and Jennifer Fraser, July 2012
It is a week since we returned from Kingennie and we along with our friends and relatives are absolutely raving about Forbes of Kingennie.
Just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so very special. We had the times of our lives and so did all our guests thanks to your superb service, food and venue. Can't thank you all enough.
Mr and Mrs Ross, May 2012
Thank you all so much for the most amazing wedding! We had the best weekend of our lives. Everything went perfect thanks to the Forbes of Kingennie team. It was all we wished for and more. Lots of Love.

Just a little note to say thank you to everyone who were involved in Mercedes and Owen's wedding reception on the 18th May. Everything was just perfect, the food, the setting and service made it a day to remember. Our Spanish guests enjoyed the day and are now safely home. Once again many thanks to all concerned. Best Wishes.

Just a short message to say many thanks to you for all the help you gave to Lee & Louise before and during their wedding last Saturday at Forbes of Kingennie. It was a beautiful day and with the help you gave made sure everything ran without a hitch. Can you also pass on my thanks to Ron who ensured the speeches and meal went smoothly and without problem. The happy couple have arrived in Mauritius and are enjoying themselves. I would have no hesitations in recommending your resort for any type of function. Once again, many thanks.

Just a quick email to thank you for our recent stay at Kingennie in conjunction with the 'Edwards Wedding'. You have a wonderful complex and the fishing was second to none, as you will note by my wife's fish of 9lb . 5oz. Bards Neuk was a wonderful home. Thanking you all once again for your hospitality.
Thank you all so much for making our wedding weekend so special. From start to finish we had an absolute ball and all of our guests absolutely loved the venue. A special thanks to chef and the team – a cracking meal which everyone raved about. We can’t wait to spend our first anniversary with you.
Please pass on to your staff, our thanks for the fab service we received from everyone at Kingennie. We had a great day and all plans went well despite the poor weather. We would certainly use the lodge again if it was available. By the way the standard and quality of the food was excellent! it was delivered to the table very efficiently and we made it back up to the lodge on time. !
Regards to all. Sandra. 30th march 2011
Just thought I would drop you an email to let you know how much me, my family and friends enjoyed the weekend. The north and south courts were amazing, really gorgeous. We really felt like we were looked after by your staff in the restaurant and obviously by yourself. Thank you very much indeed for everything, it's was definately a weekend I will remember.
To all the Staff at Forbes of Kingennie, thank you to all of you for making our recent D750 Reunion weekend such a success. Our members voted it the best yet and praised all aspects of your work, especially the food and the service. All of you have excellent customer presentation. I organise dinners at the House of Commons, at the Carlton Club in St James`s and at our local Michelin-starred Manor House Hotel and Country Club at Castle Combe . Your performance at our weekend equalled the best that those establishments have to offer. Needless to say we will be back in 2010.
I would like to thank you for the most wonderful weekend we have just spent at the Leannan Boat House. It puts self catering in a different light. The boat house is excellent and very well equipped to a high standard. We have visited 4 and 5 star hotels around the world, and they are not so nice as this boat house was. We were very impressed. I work for a large oil company in Aberdeen and have already been telling people what a lovely stress-free weekend we had in beautiful surroundings. Top marks to staff who were very helpful and couldn't have been nicer. We will definitely visit again. It’s nice to know a place that can be recommended to friends.
I would like to express the appreciation of our Club after our recent Fishing Outing (30th Sept) to Kingennie. We found the facilities, the arrangements and catering absolutely first class and would like to thank all involved for making our Outing an outstanding success. In particular I would like to thank Colin and Grant for their assistance with the fishing arrangements and although the weather was rather windy at times we had a very successful day with our 24 anglers catching some 56 fish! We also appreciated the tackle prizes you donated to add to our evening presentation after dinner in the Inglesmaldie. We would have no hesitation in recommending your Resort or repeating the visit next year.
Many thanks for making our Outing a success!

To the Forbes family, I write to say a huge thank you to you and the staff at Kingennie for a wonderful casting for recovery weekend, your hospitality was truly exceptional. I feel sure I can speak on behalf of the whole group when I say that the weekend from start to finish was absolutely amazing. Not to mention my two and a half pound catch, which tasted delightful when we had it for our evening meal on Monday. It gave us all a great opportunity to speak to like minded people and experience total escapism. We had lots of fun,laughter and of course the odd tear!
Many sincere thanks again.
Please pass on my many thanks to John without whom I would not of caught or landed the fish, it was a delight to meet and spend time with him.
Hope to visit at some point with my family
Jayne Whitcher, September 2012
On behalf of all who attended the Casting for Recovery weekend, we wanted to say a huge thank you for making it the success it was. Everybody's efforts were very much appreciated. We will be back to improve our skills and catch lots of fish, you have been warned!.
Love Alison Walker and the other Participants, September 2012
We were at your fantastic resort for the Macmillan Cancer Fund and what a fantastic day’s fishing we had. The hospitality was the best I have ever known and I will definitely be back. Your staff are a credit to you and the manager was so helpful.
I have just spent the weekend at the fly fishing retreat. Thank you both for giving us such a fabulous time. I loved the whole thing. The staff went out of their way to provide help and support, nothing was too much trouble, and accomodation of a very high standard. My ghillie was so nice, patient, polite and well-mannered, with a wealth of knowledge.
Just a note of appreciation for your handling of our meal yesterday. My members were very impressed with the meal and service in spite of the difficulties posed by the little lambs who'd lost their way. Very few had been to Forbes of Kingennie before, so I was doubly pleased my choice had been so successful. Again, Thank You.
My friend and I visited your restaurant last weekend and were very impressed with not just the beauty of the restaurant and surrounding countryside but also the friendly staff. We were so impressed we came back this Saturday and were most surprised at the welcome we were given by your staff.
The service was second to none, toilets were spotless and the food was such a feast and so well presented.
A note to express our thanks and that of our family and friends for the wonderful visit to Kingennie Court to celebrate Robert’s 60th birthday. The venue was ideal in so many ways and the food and service was superb. The care and attention shown by all the staff helped make it such a memorable occasion.
