Media & Location

Hopetoun House and Estate has a great variety of locations suitable for television, film and photography, yet is within easy reach of Edinburgh and has excellent transport links. Hopetoun House sits in 144 acres of mature grounds with extensive lawn areas, deer parks, woodland, panoramic vistas over the Firth of Forth, outbuildings, period features, cobbled courtyards and lanes. The wider Estate spans a further 6,500 acres.


The unique architecture of Hopetoun House provides a wide range of settings for any film or photography projects. Because the house was built in two styles, it has two grand façades: the imposing Adam front facing East, and the more intimate Bruce façade facing West.

Interiors include the grand State Apartments with ornate ceilings and period furniture, an oak panelled Parlour with French doors opening onto expansive lawns and fountain, a sweeping staircase with murals and cupola, and a grand ballroom. The rooms awaiting renovation provide a different opportunity for any media project requiring less opulent settings.
