Your Visit

Our excellent guides are on hand throughout the house to help you enjoy your visit by providing information on the House and Family and can answer any questions you may have. Visitors are free to explore the house at their own pace; we recommend allowing at least an hour.

The grounds to the west of the house are amongst the finest areas of parkland in Lothian with delightful woodland walks and magnificent views along and across the Firth of Forth. Our Hopetoun Ranger is available for assistance or group walks to ensure you make the most of our beautiful grounds.

Due to the ongoing Covid situation the Stables Kitchen is currently closed. Opening dates still to be confirmed.

The Stables Kitchen serves delicious snacks, lunches and afternoon teas on site with a special group menu available. Pre-booking is essential. Coach Drivers receive a complimentary refreshment voucher.
