Kinnaird succeeded his father in the lordship of Kinnaird in 1826. This was a Scottish peerage and did not entitle him to an automatic seat in the House of Lords. However, in 1831 he was created Baron Rossie, of Rossie Priory in the County of Perth, in the Peerage of the United Kingdom, which gave him a seat in the upper chamber of Parliament. In December 1839 he was appointed Master of the Buckhounds under Lord Melbourne, a post he held until the government fell in 1841. He was sworn of the Privy Council in early 1840. In 1857 he was made a Knight of the Thistle. Three years later he was created Baron Kinnaird, of Rossie in the County of Perth, also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. In contrast to the earlier barony, which was created with normal remainder to heirs male, this barony was created with special remainder to his younger brother, Arthur. Kinnaird later served as Lord Lieutenant of Perthshire from 1866 to 1878.
