The house is filled with amazing historical treasures. Ig you have a love for arts and crafts, this is a must see. Beautiful detail through out the whole house. Also a great play park for kids at the beginning.

I enjoyed my visit to the house but was suprised you could not take photographs most other house including buckingham palace allow photos. The gardens are certainly worth a visit.

I always knew about this house and its fabulous reputation. When I visited recently with a couple of friends I was totally blown away by the grandeur and decor. As I'm from India I really appreciated the bold colours and the opulence. Outstanding to say the least! Chandrabali x.

Spent the afternoon here weather was stunning and the enthusiastic guides who clearly adore the house were a joy. The house actually defies description but I implore you to go and see it. Was disappointed Cullen skink not on visitor centre menu as it was lovely last time I went. Wouldn't advise taking very young childre to the house but... More

The gardens were vast and varied between natural woodlands and more formal beautifully kept areas with interesting plants. The view from the garden is superb. This does not prepare you for seeing the interior of the house which was breathtakingly beautiful. Every room was entered with a 'wow' factor and we finished in the chapel which was exceptional. Marble, stained... More

The visitors centre was very welcoming and informative. There is quite a walk, lovely as it is to the actual house itself, walking through kitchen gardens, the tall trees and even the walk along the stony beach. The house was amazing the number of guides and knowledgeable staff on hand was overwhelming as each room had its on story to... More

What we saw of the house was great. The tour guide, Norrie Macdonald, was superb. However... it would have been good if we had been shown more of the house, including the swimming pool. If the tour had shown us more of the house then could probably have given more stars.

This mansion is packed full of treasures and is very well endowed with gothic and marble features. The house and grounds are impeccably maintained and the guide staff are real enthusiasts. Their love of the place is a huge plus. You could easily spend a day here with the lovely walks and play areas making a family day out very... More
