  • Beautiful mansion and gardens. NTS property with very knowledgeable staff. I loved that we could give the historic games a try. Worth a visit; want to return to play hickory golf!
  • A beautifully preserved Edwardian house. We had a very educational guided tour and there was plenty to do afterwards too, including a small but excellent cafe. Can highly recommend
  • Fascinating example of a Jute Baron's mansion from the early 20th century
  • One of our favourite places. Lovely team here and one of the best NTS properties locally for kids activities. When they were between kids trails for the interior a very nice American lady engaged the children and showed them interesting things. Last year (2016) the team did a superb pamphlet of things for the whole family to do at HoT. There was a fun garden party with a swing band, traditional games and a very good treasure hunt. ?Jan made the coconut shy himself. There is a hill to climb, walks, a tower (Scotstarvit) in the grounds, a large old fashioned laundry room in the grounds and a good tea room. No surprise it won a best visitor attraction award in Fife last year. Update: May 2017: Informative 2 hour wildflower walk and talk with NTS Ranger Stuart. Did you know besides many woodland flowers that HoT has a wildflower meadow beside the golf course?
  • Worth the short treck to to top.
