Kinross House is a wonderful five-star mansion house and estate nestling on the west banks of Loch Leven.
Perfectly positioned just 40 minutes from Edinburgh and 45 from St Andrews, the house itself is of significant architectural importance.
Kinross House Estate
The estate is comprised of 100 acres of parkland and beautifully restored gardens as well as an intriguing private island boasting the ruin of Loch Leven Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned between 1567-68, and was bought by Sir William Bruce in 1615 as a focal point for his garden.
The estate can sleep up to 48 in 24 bedrooms: Kinross House has 14 uniquely designed ensuite bedrooms and The Coach House provides a further 10 individually designed ensuite bedrooms.
The Coach House
The Coach House on Kinross House Estate was built in 1680 and actually pre-dates Kinross House. Extensive refurbishment of this charming and historic stables courtyard was completed in 2015. The Coach House comprises a baronial Dining Hall for up to 60 guests, a striking tartan library bar, a picturesque courtyard garden, walled kitchen garden and a further 10 delightful bedrooms for up to 20 guests.
The Coach House also offers a small and intimate boutique Day Spa complete with treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pool, sauna and relaxation areas for guests to enjoy.
There are some lovely walks around the estate and gardens. Just beyond the garden walls, there is Loch Leven Heritage trail which is a 21km trail that surrounds the loch, perfect for walking or cycling, suitable for everyone.
There are also many other walking, hiking and mountain biking options within a short distance. Loch Leven is also Scotland’s largest lowland freshwater loch, and a designated National Nature Reserve. It's the perfect spot for some trout fishing. With clay pigeon shooting and archery as well as Falconry experiences and team building events based around highland games it is the perfect place for a getaway.
