Hopetoun House Tours

Hopetoun House is widely known as one of the best examples of 18th century architecture in Britain. Located just outside of Edinburgh on the shores of the Firth of Forth, Hopetoun dates largely to the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The original part of the home provides great examples of Scottish wainscoting, carving and ceiling painting, while a newer addition boasts a grand façade, colonnades and state apartments that were the center of the family’s social life in the 18th century. The furniture, paintings, tapestries and other items on display in the house remain mostly unchanged from that era. Two libraries contain books that the family has collected since 1650. Visitors can also climb 92 steps up to a rooftop viewing platform that offers magnificent views around the estate and the River Forth.

The grounds surrounding Hopetoun House feature two walking trails, an orienteering course and a garden, and can be visited on their own or in conjunction with a tour of the house.

Practical Info

Tours of the house are offered daily at 2:00 p.m. and are included in the price of admission. The ticket office is to the southeast of the house, near the car park. It is best reached by car through the streets of Queensferry and then heading west along the bank of the River Forth off Society Road. Hopetoun House is also a stop on many “Outlander” themed tours, highlighting locations used in the television series.
