The Dalreoch Farming and Sporting Estate belongs to the Wellesley family who descend from the McConnels who have lived in the Stinchar valley for 150 years. It is run as a traditional rural estate with farming, fishing and shooting at its heart.

The Estate is opposed to any wind-turbines being installed in the Stinchar valley, which is not an appropriate place for such industrial development. The Estate believes that visitors come to South Ayrshire to appreciate the scenery, wild-life and the unspoilt countryside.
