Return to Welcome to Fife Hill of Tarvit

Hill of Tarvit

Hill of Tarvit is a 20th-century mansion house and gardens, designed by Sir Robert Lorimer. The house was built for Frederick Bower Sharp, whose family had made their fortune in Dundee’s jute industry.

His intention was to construct a new family home with ready access to Dundee and to his golfing interests at St Andrews' Royal and Ancient Golf Club.  He also wanted somewhere to house his already extensive collection of paintings, tapestries, furniture and porcelain.

The new house was fitted with all modern conveniences, including electricity, an internal phone system and central heating.

One of the property’s major attractions is the original 9-hole hickory club golf course, which Sharp added in 1924 to the south of the house. It is now completely restored, giving golfers a rare opportunity to turn back the clock and enjoy the game as it was played in Edwardian times.

Open end of March to end of October
