Beautiful William Adam house with superb gardens and grounds. Open all year.

Houses dont come more like a wedding cake than this which is why it is so popular as a wedding venue, no doubt. The combination of the ornate, exactly proportioned exterior, the lovely Georgian interior and superb gardens make this a very interesting day out. It is also an annexe of the Scottish National Gallery and so hosts very good art exhibitions as well. For bored kids, there is a play area and lots of room outside to let off some steam. Definately a mature attraction.

The house was built between 1735/40 for the future 1st Earl Fife when Scotland was still excited by the Jacobean Threat looming in the next few years. He was a member of Parliament.

It was inhabited byu the family until C20 when it became a hotel and at one point a POW camp. Now it is managed by Historic Scotland
