Gilmerton House

Sleeps up to 20

Where time stands still and elegance meets the rugged Scottish wilderness, Gilmerton House beckons, a beacon of luxury and tradition. Mere moments from Edinburgh, yet worlds away from the urban hustle, this exclusive-use estate marries history with a hint of the contemporary. Standing tall since the early 1600s, Gilmerton’s vivid history unfolds through the warmth of its log fires, the ancestral portraits lining its halls, and the legacy of the Kinloch family that has inhabited its rooms for thirteen generations.

Offering accommodation fit for royalty, the main house proudly features 10 lavish bedrooms, while The Lodge, nestled within the estate, adds an intimate touch with an additional 3 bedrooms. Whether you’re booking the entire estate or just The Lodge, comfort and grandeur await.

Yet, even such a grand dame as Gilmerton House keeps pace with the times. The latest flourish to its already impeccable repertoire is the addition of The Laundry House, a renovated event space that combines rustic charm with modern convenience. Originally conceived in 1804, this space has worn many hats – from an estate laundry to a garage, and intriguingly, a gym. Today, reimagined and reinvigorated, it stands ready to host bespoke events, adding another layer to Gilmerton’s expansive offering.

Whether it’s the draw of North Berwick’s pristine beaches, the allure of ancient castles, or the promise of golfing retreats and stately celebrations, Gilmerton House waits with open arms, ever-evolving, always enchanting.
