The landscaped gardens are beautiful and there are lovely walks. The house has been preserved and the guide was very informative and knowledgeable. There is also a cafe onsite. The car parking is free.

If you want a leisurely walk around the gardens or a steep climb up to the viewpoint here's the spot. The house was remodelled by Sir Robert Lorimer and is interesting and has a wide range of artistic contents.

Grounds are beautiful any time of year. The house is an interesting afternoon's visit. Good tearoom.

We walked the grounds and then went into the house where we had a free guided tour, which was really good and informative. Worth a visit.

We were visiting Fife for a few days break and as we are NT members we look to visiting their properties. Arriving a little earlier than the house normally opens to the public we were asked if we would like a tour from the "head guide" is he could do it. Lucky us, he could and we were treated to...

Beautiful gardens and house , plenty to keep children occupied indoors and out. THE quiz for children was excellent and they learned so much from the guides. Particularly enjoyed that children could play piano in room and have items they could touch.

Having not visited this area before, we did it correctly. The previous day we had visited Kellie Castle where we had learned about the Lorimers and then Hill of Tarvit with the Lorimer influence. A beautiful house but with restricted viewing times as we discovered, dependent on how many volunteers turned up! Most were really excellent but one was rather... More

Excellent day out. Beautiful house and not kept as a museum, you can touch or get close to a lot of the exhibits. The gardens are stunning and plenty of beautiful walks. The grounds are easily negotiated with a pram or kids buggy but may not be so easy with a wheelchair. The only criticism I have is the cafe... More
