Kinloch /ˈkɪnlɒx/ is a village along the A94 road near the town of Meigle in eastern Scotland.[1] Approximately three kilometres to the east is the village of Eassie noted for the presence of the Eassie Stone; this carved Pictish stone is dated prior to the Early Middle Ages.[2]

From around 1972, until his death in 1989, Kinloch House was the residence of Captain The 6th Earl of Enniskillen, M.B.E., an Anglo-Irish aristocrat. Popularly known as David Enniskillen, he had been born into a famous Ulster family and had spent much of his life in Kenya.
