  • Scotland's biggest and best stately home. The contrast between the older Bruce designed rooms and the large elegant Adam rooms is nice. There are friendly and knowledgeable staff on hand to answer questions. The large gardens are pleasant to walk through on a nice day. The cafe in the old stables is worth visiting as the food is good.
  • Very beautiful house with stunning interior. Also I would like to say that the staff were very professional and friendly. The grounds were a bit dull unlike many other places I've been there was almost nothing of note on either of the named walks and all the paths were claggy mud. The back lawn however is very nice and well looked after. Price for entry is too high when comparing to similar attractions in UK and they have better grounds. A tenner an adult is too much for this.
  • The home is OK, not the best but still worth a visit. The stable tea rooms are excellent and the surrounding walks are lovely especially the one of the side of the Firth of forth where you will see lots of deer.
  • What a place! You can spend the whole day here in the house and the gardens/parkland, great cakes in the tea room as well. Spectacular views from the roof on a nice day.
  • The building itself was beautiful however i found the staff really rude. Which was a surprise as mostly Scotish people are extremely sweet.. i will not be xoming here again
