  • Don't use GPS to find it. Use signage. It was closed after we finally managed to locate. Beautiful from the long driveway, and I imagine the interior is breathtaking 
  • This estate is not so easy to find. Thanks gps, not helpful, but once found it's worth it. The house is massive. Great paintings in frames and on the walls. Very nice and helpful volunteers. Great tea...  read more »

  • Beautiful historic house. There's an attached cafĂ© and gardens to walk in. Take the Sea Walk Trail for views of the Forth and a herd of deer.
  • Very beautiful stately home, which has been a home for Hope family for the last 400 years
  • Alot bigger than I thought, beautiful inside and very helpful and informative guides
  • I took my Primary 2 class here for the day as part of our topic on the Victorians. We were greeted as soon as we got off the bus and directed to the 'school room' where children could safely leave their jackets and bags/lunches. During the first session the pupils were dressed in authentic Victorian costumes which they highly enjoyed and then given a tour of the house as servants. Mrs Ward was an excellent guide and kept everybody engaged through her humour and enthusiasm. We all learned a lot and I feel that everything was adapted to their level, which was a concern I had before the trip! There were many opportunities for photos and at the end we undertook various cleaning jobs in the Butler's pantry - this was the highlight as it was a very hands-on experience for the learners. We returned to the school room for lunch and in the afternoon we received a tour of the beautiful grounds. The children struggled to stay as focused during this session, I think because they hadn't had any opportunity to run around/release their energy and also it wasn't really relevant to the Victorians. However, they were fascinated by the deer and were given the opportunity to touch real antlers. I would highly recommend a visit to Hopetoun House for any classes studying the Victorians.
  • This venue is absolutely breathtaking.
