Overview
Duration
75 minutes
Starting time
Guided tours leave at regular intervals between 12:00 and 15:30
Highlights
  • Take in the breathtaking rococo designs, gilded eagles and early 18th-century decorations in this former stately home. Grab one of the frequent guided tours and soak up all the details!
  • Visit the abandoned servants’ kitchen and scullery which were locked up from the 1940s to the 1990s!
  • Take woodland walks and get stunning views across the Firth of Forth and other towns along the river
Description

Walk through three centuries of history in a house once owned by the prominent Dalrymple family. See old books and ancient features, gilded eagles and abandoned rooms that were only recently unlocked! Walk the woodland grounds and take in amazing views of the Forth and beyond. A refreshing day out from Edinburgh.

The abandoned servants’ kitchen and scullery would make for a great opening scene in a period drama (albeit a creepy one). These rooms were locked up from the 1940s to the 1990s so it's pretty eerie down there.

Once the residence of the powerful Dalrymple family, much of this impressive stately home near Edinburgh has been left the way it was. Historical wonders range from the Chinese wallpaper and Italian fireplace, to the gilded eagles guarding the drawing room door, to the tatty books and flattened polar bear rug in the library!

Exit the house the same way the servants did, through a tunnel, and take a woodland walk in the gorgeous grounds. There's a tea house and shell grotto, plus stunning views across the Forth and beyond.

Soak it up as if you too are a member of the landed gentry. Tip your hat or curtsey to the National Trust, who've done a bang-up job here.
