Hopetoun House & Grounds - Forth Boat Tours.

Hopetoun House – one of Scotland’s magnificent stately homes

Visit Hopetoun and discover a place of beauty, tranquillity and architectural magnificence dating from the 17th century. It has been home to the Hope Family since the late 1600’s. Indeed, the present Lord Hopetoun and his family still live in Hopetoun House. Hopetoun House, a remarkable and beautiful stately home, is filled with stunning collections and sits in majestic grounds with nature trails and scenic walks.

Hopetoun House is often referred to as Scotland’s Finest Stately Home. It is also a five-star Visitor Attraction, testament to the friendly team and its aim of providing an exceptional customer experience.

Fascinatingly, the magnificent interiors have remained virtually unchanged for three centuries. Indeed they reflect the elegance of the Georgian era, decorated with the best period furniture, from the time.

Furthermore, we do on occasion have additional guided tours throughout the house simply ask a member of staff for more information on these.

The Stables Kitchen

Furthermore, one of the delights of Hopetoun is a visit to the Stables Kitchen. Indeed a clever and sensitive restoration of the 18th Century Adam Stables, has transformed into a comfortable and cosy eatery. Simply choose from afternoon teas to homemade dishes, there really is something on the menu for everyone.

The Ranger Centre

Alternatively visit the Ranger’s Centre for games including the big Hopetoun bug hunt. There’s also colouring sheets, interactive displays and the chance to handle wildlife finds from the grounds. The Rangers Centre is conveniently located behind the Stables Kitchen.

Please note that admission to the House and surrounding Grounds is by ticket only.
