More about

Nestling on a hillside in the Fife countryside, this early twentieth-century family home is one of the few country houses by the famous Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer to retain its original collections. The house was remodelled in 1906 by Lorimer for wealthy jute manufacturer Frederick Sharp, and showcases a notable collection of French, Chippendale-style and vernacular furniture, along with paintings by Raeburn, Ramsay and eminent Dutch artists. Lorimer also designed the gardens, with formal lawns, yew hedging, flowering borders and a sunken rose garden. There are paths to the hilltop viewpoint and the wider estate. The grounds contain a recently reinstated nine-hole hickory golf course, providing an innovative and memorable experience for all players.
