 Balbirnie House

Balbirnie HouseOne of Scotland's finest mansions, Balbirnie is a delightful Grade A Georgian house dating back to 1777. The house, of considerable historic and architectural importance, is surrounded by a beautiful 416 acre country park, landscaped in the style of Capability Brown. The classic proportions of the house are reflected in the gracious and elegant reception rooms, particularly the magnificent Long Gallery, whose windows overlook the woods and sweeping lawns of the park. Incorporated within the estate is a scenic and undulating par-71 golf course. The course offers an interesting challenge to what the golf pro calls the thinking golfer. Situated in the historic kingdom of Fife, Balbirnie House is also close to St Andrews and other world-class golf courses; here the golfer is truly spoiled for choice. The superb dining experience at Balbirinie offers a light and inventive approach to modern Scottish cooking, recognized recently with the unique award of MacAllan Taste of Scotland Hotel of the Year status. The hotel has also held 4AA Red Star Awards since 1995 and has just been nominated Golf International Hotel of the Year. This magnificent house is only 35 miles from Edinburgh, making a visit to Scotland's finest capital city an easy option. Balbirnie is set within a four-hundred acre estate in the Kingdom of Fife, an outstanding Grade A listed Georgian country house and luxury hotel that has been winning awards for the excellence of its food, comfort and service for many years. The views from the house extend over well manicured lawns to Balbirnie Park golf course, a scenic and undulating par 71 challenge. It is easily accessible from Scotland's Capital Edinburgh. The World Home of Golf, St Andrews, Perth and Dundee.
Balbirnie is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
