Balbirnie House is a delightful 18th century Georgian mansion nestled amidst 400 acres of rolling parkland in the heart of Fife. The small luxury, award-winning country house hotel (4 AA red stars) combines fine food, lovely surroundings and above all a real sense of friendly Scottish hospitality.
We have a choice of three luxurious four poster deluxe rooms, both with wonderful views over the garden lawns and fabulous bathrooms. The rooms to choose for that extra special occasion.
Also available are two super suites with separate sitting rooms (one is on the ground floor). Ideal for families staying with us too as up to 3 extra fold down beds can be added in each room.
All unique, our deluxe rooms are all extremely spacious, with gorgeous views over the gardens or surrounding parkland. All have king size beds and can doubled or twinned as required.
Our classic rooms are located all over the original old house, some on the ground floor, some in the eaves, some complete with little staircase entrances. All charming and individually designed for our guest needs. Double and twins available.
Balbirnie is situated within a beautifully landscaped 400 acre parkland estate, just by the village of Markinch in the heart of the kingdom of Fife. The hotel is located about 40 minutes north of Edinburgh and 25 minutes south of St. Andrews, perfect for touring and exploring central Scotland. Perth and Dundee are also within 40 minutes drive.
