Dalmeny House, South Queensferry
(4/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Dalmeny House is a Gothic revival mansion located in an estate close to Dalmeny on the Firth of Forth, to the north-west of Edinburgh, Scotland. It was designed by William Wilkins, and completed in 1817. Dalmeny House is the home of the Earl and Countess of Rosebery. The house was the first in Scotland to be built in the Tudor Revival style. It provided more comfortable accommodation than the former ancestral residence, Barnbougle Castle, which still stands close by. Dalmeny today remains a private house, although it is open to the public during the summer months. The house is protected as a category A listed building, while the grounds are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.
A visit to Dalmeny House represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Edinburgh tour planner to plot your vacation.

  • I saw the actual House only from a distance. I walked a part of stage of the John Muir Trail here through the lands and have brought a picnic pause before the main house on the water. "Everyone's favourite picnic place" has really brilliant views of the House, the Lake and in the distance you can guess Edinburgh. Preferably I would sit still!

  • A perfect setting for an international car launch. We drove there from Edinburgh airport, only 40 min away, and spent a couple of hours enjoying visiting the house itself and exploring the grounds whi...  more »
  • The farmstead is located not far from Edinburgh, on the southern shore of the Firth of forth. The mansion is adorable, he is massive and is strict in its architecture, but at the same time has subtle reliefs and openwork spires. In the House you can see excellent collection of paintings and tapestries, porcelain and French furniture and other art objects. A garden around the House, with a perfectly clipped lawns and trees in tubs. Walking around the estate, you can admire the stunning views of the Firth of forth.
