Bamff Estate

A pioneering example of ecology restoration.

Bamff is a 1,300 acre estate carved out of the old Royal Forest of Alyth.

In 1232, King Alexander II gave it to Neish Ramsay, his doctor, and his descendants have held it ever since.

The present house began as a peel tower in the late 16th century.

Priorities have differed over the centuries through enclosure, designed landscape and drainage, to romanticism, shooting, exotic specimen trees and agricultural improvements.

The current generation, since the 1980s, has focussed on environmental conservation with native woodlands, a beaver demonstration project, and recently ecotourism with off grid glamping.

The farmland is managed as an organic stock rearing farm.
