Gilmerton House in East Lothian with its 10 luxurious bedrooms is grand yet welcoming, and has been the Kinloch family’s home for 13 generations since 1650.
A Grade A listed Georgian stately home designed in the classic style by Robert Adam around 1750, modernised by William Burn in the 1820’s with improved symmetry, a grand facade and details inspired by classical architecture.
Surrounded by 100 acres of lawns, gardens and woodland walks, our tranquil stately home is popular with overseas visitors, special family celebrations, golf groups, wedding parties, executive retreats and much more. A home-from-home with exclusivity and impeccable service in a warm, relaxed ambience.
