A fabulous grand manor house just 9 miles from the centre of Edinburgh!

The Edinburgh Mansion welcomes you. Nestled amid 30 acres of lush gardens and farmlands, the stunning Mansion offers a haven of peace and tranquillity in Edinburgh.

Originally built for the most powerful family in Scotland in the 18th century, the Mansion, occupies what is arguably the most beautiful spot in Midlothian.

The Edinburgh Mansion features 12 modern rooms with large windows and coordinated fabrics. These contemporary guest rooms are tastefully-furnished, warm and relaxing. Being a historic building the furniture is picked for each bedroom, and sits perfectly amongst the décor.

Guest Areas

The Grand Hall is often used for events or weddings, but its day to day use is as a large comfortable lounge, with an ornate fireplace and spectacular cornicing and plasterwork detail. Patio doors lead out into the back garden and the wonderful views across the grounds to the Pentland Hills, a great spot to sip a glass of champagne and watch the sun go down.

There is a selection of books for guests to peruse as well as a plasma tv with Digi box, a Stereo with iPod connection, a DVD player and a Playstation 2 for use by groups or families. DVDs and games however are limited and therefore we encourage guests to bring their own. There is a number of board games and a beautiful antique card table complete with 2 decks of cards for those who fancy a challenge.

The lounge extends to the dining room area and often the two rooms are used as one for an event.

The Dining Room is joined to the Grand hall and is where guests can enjoy breakfast and pre arranged dinners. The room includes a beautiful antique table which can seat 22 people, a great place for a Murder Mystery Dinner or simply a late brunch.

The Kirkhill Mansion Grand Piano is located at the east end of the room, a masterpiece which is asking to be played, and guests are more than welcome to do so.

The Games Room has a pool table and darts board, for guests to enjoy any time.

The house is booked exclusively for your event .

Wonderful Base for Country Pursuits

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, fishing and much more. The surrounding area provides a wealth of attractions to suit all tastes.

Hot tub (From 1st February 2014)

Perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the countryside, lower yourself in and live like a royal in Kirkhill's private outdoor hot-tub...

(The hot tub is an additional cost of £350 per weekend, this is for heating and cleaning)

Weekend stay – Check in Friday at 3pm, not earlier unless by prior arrangement.
