Steeped in history and grandeur, Kinross House and its fabulous country estate setting undoubtedly provides one of Scotland’s finest destinations, a unique and regal place of unparalleled beauty. The estate comprises over 100 acres of formal gardens, woodland and also includes Loch Leven Castle Island. The estate sits on the banks of the beautiful Loch Leven, the largest loch in the Scottish lowlands and now cited as a national nature reserve, yet the location is only 40 minutes from Edinburgh.

Kinross House has a magnificent history, designed by Sir William Bruce and dating back to 1685. The house is the first, and most important, neoclassical Palladian mansion built in Scotland, considered to be Sir William Bruce’s greatest masterpiece. The island has many important historical links, with Mary Queen of Scots suffering imprisonment on the island for almost a year in the 16th century.

All rooms boast stunning views of the beautiful gardens, Loch Leven and the hills beyond.
