Overview

Steeped in history and grandeur, Kinross House and its fabulous estate setting provide one of Scotland’s finest exclusive use destinations.

The estate comprises over 100 acres of formal gardens, woodland and Loch Leven Castle Island. The estate sits on the banks of the picturesque Loch Leven, the largest loch in the Scottish lowlands, yet is only 40 minutes from Edinburgh.

Kinross House has a magnificent history, a stately country home designed by Sir William Bruce in 1685 and considered to be his greatest masterpiece. The estate offers up to 24 bedrooms, with options to exclusively hire Kinross House with 14 bedrooms, or the charming Coach House & Spa with 10 bedrooms, or indeed guests can book the entire estate for private use.

The house is perfectly suited to host events for up to 90 and many garden areas suitable for wonderful marquee events for up to 450. The Coach House also offers a small and intimate boutique day spa complete with treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pool, sauna and relaxation area.

A word from the owner

Loch Leven is Scotland’s largest lowland freshwater loch and forms part of the estate.  Castle Island within the loch comes complete with ruined castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned between 1567-68.

Walks

We have some lovely walks around the estate and gardens. Just beyond the garden walls, we have Loch Leven Heritage trail which is a 21km trail which surrounds the loch, perfect for walking or cycling, suitable for everyone including wheelchair users. It provides stunning views of the loch and its islands, over toward the rolling hills in the background.

There are also many other walking, hiking and mountain biking options within a short distance. We have a number of bikes available for use by our guests, and we can hire more as needed. 

See www.lochlevenheritagetrail.co.uk for more details. 



Weddings

Exclusive hire of the entire Kinross House Estate includes accommodation split across both the main Kinross house and Coach House, providing a total of 24 bedrooms for up to 48 guests. Our boutique Coach House Day Spa can also be hired to ensure complete privacy. The house is suitable to host house weddings for ideally up to approximately 60 guests, and for larger weddings, the house can be used in association with a marquee for up to 450 located on one of the beautiful garden lawns to take advantage of the spectacular views over Loch Leven Island and Castle.

The Ceremony
For small and intimate ceremonies for up to 60, we can host your ceremony in the house in our Garden Room with lovely views overlooking the loch. For larger ceremonies up to 100, we can occasionally host the ceremony in our majestic Grand Salon. For over 100, ceremonies are hosted in a marquee. Weather permitting, we can of course host a spectacular outdoor ceremony in a location of your choice.

The Wedding Breakfast
We can host a wedding breakfast for up to 34 in our Dining Room on one large table. For up to 90, our Grand Salon can occasionally be offered for a wedding breakfast, however do note there is no provision for dancing in this area of the house due to the need to preserve the historic nature and contents of this room. A marquee is by far the best option to host a larger wedding with evening dancing and can be located in many wonderful locations in our gardens.
