          About Kirkhill Mansion

          During your stay you can easily visit the many famous sites in the historic city of Edinburgh. Alternatively, you can take advantage of this wonderful countryside location to try hiking, cycling, quad biking, clay shooting and much more. The surrounding area provides a wealth of attractions to suit all tastes.

          This self-catering house near Edinburgh offers the flexibility of an exclusive holiday let.

          The Edinburgh Kirkhill Mansion can host any number from 8 up to 34 guests. Our individually decorated bedrooms can be adapted as king, double, twin and bunk bed rooms depending on your particular requirements. Whether you need a honeymoon suite, a double, twin, family or a single room, we can make it work beautifully. Most of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with powerful showers.

          The heart of the house, the Grand Hall, is Kirkhill’s main reception room. An impressive room packed with period features such as high ceilings, cornicing and patio doors leads directly out to the garden. With picturesque views over the Pentland Hills, it is the perfect place for any event.

          Extending directly into the opulent Dining Room, the Grand Hall can host up to 70 guests for a drinks reception and up to 300 guests including the garden. There are also some great books and games, so it also works as a decadent space to relax and let the day go by. If you are a music enthusiast you can try your skills on the beautiful piano which is just next to the big lounge.

          The top floor of the house hosts eight double bedrooms, seven of which are en-suite and the eighth has a private bathroom close by. These rooms can be configured in a number of ways to sleep a maximum of 22 people.

          The basement offers another four luxury bedrooms arranged with taste and big windows for full enjoyment of our guests. All the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

          The reason people fall in love with Kirkhill Mansion is the view over the valley under the ancient Scots Pine (reportedly planted at the time of the original construction by the Dundas’ of Arniston). A true country retreat within easy reach of Edinburgh, Kirkhill Mansion has over 3000 established trees. With the North Esk River running around half of the house’s boundary, you’re almost guaranteed to see your fair share of local wildlife. From deer to bats, trout, rabbits, water voles, woodpeckers and numerous songbirds, it is the perfect setting for a country event near the city.

          Kirkhill Mansion is situated in the small town of Gorebridge just a 5-minute drive from town shops, post office and train station. The closest big market is Tesco in Bonnyrigg which is a 10minute drive away.

          We’re also pleased to offer plenty of activities and experiences on-site and nearby. From highland games and archery, to private chefs and welcome platters. Please speak to your Event Co-ordinator and we’ll create a bespoke offering for you.
