  • Good walking or cycling area house is open at select times and occasional events take place in the grounds
  • Great historic house and museum the guided tour was great and to think that the house was almost demolished... amazing wall paintings and painted ceilings... a true Scottish gem
  • Open day was great, the guide was so informative and didn't realise the history the house and area held. Well worth looking at the open day times
  • Love kinneil and right on my door step great for sunny days and woodland walks
  • Terrific small, friendly museum. Learn about Romans, the history of Kinneil House and Estate. James Watt's work on the Steam Engine. Free entry. Closed Tuesdays.
