Hopetoun House

Hopetoun House is ‘Scotland’s finest stately home’. Set in over 150 acres of rolling parkland only twelve miles from the centre of Edinburgh, Hopetoun is an incomparable setting for exclusive functions, events and conferences

We offer the versatility and flexibility you would expect from a leading events venue and, together with our award-winning in-house caterers, provide the perfect venue for tailor-made events. Small, elegant dinner parties can be held in the stunning Red Drawing Room or State Dining Room while banquets and gala dinners with dancing for up to 270 guests can be staged in the fabulous Ballroom resplendent with chandeliers and 17th-century tapestries.

We can also host conferences for 50-300 and can provide breakout rooms as required with finger buffets served in the Adam Stables. Or why not consider the ultimate event – a dinner for 2000 in a gigantic marquee on the manicured lawns with Hopetoun’s stunning Georgian architecture providing the perfect backdrop.

Hopetoun offers an unparalleled range of entertainment and our sophisticated Scottish Gala Evening combines the very best of Scottish hospitality, entertainment and cuisine with Beating Retreat performed under floodlight as a grand finale.

Situated only 12 miles from Edinburgh City Centre, a 15-minute drive from Edinburgh Airport, and within 3 miles of central Scotland’s main motorway network, Glasgow, Stirling and Perth are under one hour’s drive away.
