The History of Kinblethmont House

The first recorded human activity on Kinblethmont is a 3000 year old sun engraving on a stone that the Picts then adorned with their images 2000 years later. It stands in the atrium in Kinblethmont house.

King David is then recorded to have walked from Abberbrothock to the barony of Kinblethmont in 1219. There are recorded owners from the twelfth century but the story gets interesting as the mayhem that followed the murder of King James 1 covered the country. Kinblethmont became the focus of a feud between the Lindsays and the Carnegies that lasted over 150 years. The feud resulted in a curse that no male heir would be born at Kinblethmont.
