Gilmerton House is a historic exclusive-use stately home, located on Edinburgh’s doorstep, within easy reach of North Berwick’s beaches and ancient castles. The house dates to the 16th century and has been restored over the years, complete with a biomass boiler. Gilmerton welcomes guests for private stays, golfing retreats, exclusive events and celebrations throughout the year. With log fires and walls adorned with family portraits, Gilmerton House has welcomed guests for a range of events over the years.

A family home since the early 1600s, it has been home to the Kinloch family for 13 generations. Whilst still in the Kinloch family, this historic mansion is otherwise exclusively available for events and private stays to guests who are looking to immerse themselves in the seclusion of the Scottish countryside. The main house offers luxury accommodation options for guests, including 10 bedrooms, a private dining room, a music room and various living areas, and offers a range of activities, from clay pigeon shooting and falconry to archery and foraging walks. There is also a lodge which can sleep an additional six guests across three extra bedrooms.
