Visit House and Grounds

Hopetoun House Re-Opening
We are monitoring the Covid-19 situation very carefully here at Hopetoun and are following Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and our industry bodies’
 advice. To play our part in reducing the spread of this virus, we announce with great regret the postponement of our planned opening of the House, Grounds and the Stables Kitchen at Easter.

We are all really sorry to miss out on welcoming you back to Hopetoun but your health and ours, and that of those around us, is much more important at this time.

We aim to re-open so you can enjoy Hopetoun with us as soon as it is safely and responsibly possible to do so.

In the meantime, please do keep up to date with us on our website and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Visit Hopetoun and discover a place of beauty, tranquility and architectural magnificence dating from the 17th century. It has been home to the Hope Family since the late 1600’s and 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 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 facade 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.
