Side Angle of Hopetoun House

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

Hopetoun LibraryAs you approach Hopetoun House, the impressive panoramic view of the main façade is breathtakingly revealed. Designed by William Bruce and then altered and extended by William Adam, Hopetoun House is one of the finest examples of 18th century architecture in Britain.
The magnificent interiors which have remained virtually unchanged for three centuries reflect the elegance of the Georgian era and are decorated with the best period furniture, paintings, tapestries and clocks, with beautifully crafted finishes of carving, gilding and plaster work.

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

Admission to the House and surrounding Grounds is by ticket only.  Tickets can be purchased online or at the gate
