A must if you are in the South Queensferry area. A narrow approach road through a housing estate, required to get there, was quickly forgotten when finally approaching the House up a formal private road, which was much grander. Beautiful setting, easy parking, tours and café. A lovely day out.

Beautiful stately home, my friend and I were luckily to view all rooms in the house as well as the grounds . I would recommend climbing the stairwell to the roof for stunning views of the Firth of Forth rail and road bridges. Would love to have my wedding here !

With my mother in law visiting from England I had hoped to show off a Scottish stately home, to match those she had visited in England. Sadly Hopetoun House failed to do this. We arrived to find out that we could not view the bedrooms as filming was taking place and that we could not go to the tearoom as... More

Finally got to visit this house and its extensive grounds, and was not disappointed. Several rooms were not available for viewing due to film crews filming episodes of "Outlander but the rooms on display were very interesting. The butler's pantry is worthwhile, and do is a climb to the roof, with great views over the grounds and the Firth of... More

We arrived on Sunday as we had afternoon tea booked, the tea room was just gorgeous. The staff were very friendly when we were greeted and shown straight to our seats, they... More
