We went around the impressive Christmas Fayre with a wide variety of stalls and produce in wonderful rooms with lovely crackling fires. I'm sure there was something for every taste there and many stalls were offering special deals. Afterwards we went for a lovely walk in the frosty grounds with magnificent views over the Firth of Forth.

The annual Christmas Fayre at Hopetoun House must be one of the best around for variety of stalls, price range, venue & organising. The car park is run with precision & on hand staff to direct you to available spaces. A similar system in the Stables cafe means you can calmly queue & get food & drink and then be... More

We were lucky enough to attend a special event dinner here as few weeks ago. The evening began with a tour of the house which was spectacular. Wonderful history and beautifully appointed. Fantastic works of art. The dinner in the main ball room was delicious and was exquisitely decorated for the night. Fabulous place for a special occasion or event.

This was a wonderful school trip. It was well organised and interactive. Not only did the pupils get to dance in the ballroom, write with quill pens, play with Victorian toys, they also got to dress up in Victorian household staff clothes and experience the duties that they carried out. It is a beautiful house with lush gardens. The staff... More

Attended fireworks this evening,excellent display as always. One big drawback was the car parking,to take an hour to get out of car park was not acceptable,it was obvious that more experienced stewards were needed,due to the frustration of some drivers I witnessed a few altercations between drivers. Much better to go late as you are parked further up. We arrived... More

We stepped back in time when we visited this stately home. The docents were very informative about the history of the home and its amazing artifacts. I loved the family photos which reminded me that this was a real home and not a museum :) As much as we loved the house, the grounds were the best part of our... More

This is a site worth visiting.We had an dinner engagement there and being able to go through the home and admire the historical pieces was terrific. Highly recommend!

Don't use GPS to find it. Use signage. It was closed after we finally managed to locate. Beautiful from the long driveway, and I imagine the interior is breathtaking

This estate is not so easy to find. Thanks gps, not helpful, but once found it's worth it. The house is massive. Great paintings in frames and on the walls. Very nice and helpful volunteers. Great tea room. Food and "tea" was special. If you are a fan of the tv series "Outlander", this is a filming location for season... More
