Kinross House is the architectural jewel in Scotland’s crown, and undoubtedly one of the finest private residences in the UK. Built in 1685, the masterpiece of Sir William Bruce, Kinross House is Scotland’s first neoclassical Palladian mansion, and is set in the first designed landscape in Scottish architectural history. Today, the House has been fully restored to create a majestic home which sits comfortably amongst the finest properties in the world and constitutes a celebration of beauty, history, design and architecture. Kinross House won the UK Sotheby’s Restoration Award in 2013.
The 4,000 acre Estate offers unrivalled luxury and service. Guests enjoy the flexibility and freedom of the entire Estate, with total privacy, and the discreet, undivided attention of a hand-picked team of staff.
The interiors are breathtaking, with rich fabrics, intricate detailing, and exquisite furnishings throughout the House. The House boasts a wealth of antiques and fine art, collected over the centuries and from all corners of the world which combine to produce an extraordinarily sophisticated environment.
The immediate curtilage of the House comprises over 100 acres of woodland and beautifully landscaped gardens, and extends to magnificent Loch Leven – on an island on which stands Loch Leven Castle, famous for being the place in which Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in the 1560s and from which she was forced to abdicate the throne in favour of her infant son James VI, later to become James I of England - all part of the Estate and accessible by boat. The Loch and its surroundings play host to a number of sporting pursuits including world-class fishing and shooting.
Kinross House is available as one of the most exclusive and prestigious private venues in the UK, offering an exceptional experience. Located just 30 minutes from Edinburgh, the Estate can accommodate up to 48 guests in 24 individually designed en-suite bedrooms and boasts a private boutique spa. Helicopters are permitted to land directly on the grounds of the Estate.
