Welcome to Kinross House, the architectural jewel in Scotland’s crown

Kinross House is the first, and most important, neoclassical Palladian mansion built in Scotland. Described in Country Life Magazine as ‘the complete expression in stone of the Renaissance in Scotland’ the property was Sir William Bruce’s greatest masterpiece and now Edinburgh’s stand out vacation rental and holiday home.

Steeped in history and grandeur, sitting at the end of a tree-lined avenue on a 100-acre estate, Kinross House and its fabulous country estate setting is undoubtedly one of Scotland’s finest and most beautiful destinations.
