What a beautiful place! My first impression was that this was a great place for families (and pets). Lots of outdoor activities for children, as well as a golf course for adults. The home had an interesting history, but was not spectacular. The grounds contained...More

Loved seeing the Mansion house and the gardens. There is a lovely tea room where you can get some nice food. Also, highly recommend the walk up Tarvit Hill. Be aware of the sheep if you bring your dog :)

Amazing house. The original manor house was purchased to house the owners' collection of art, furnishings etc. but decided it didn't really suit so he had the house demolished and rebuilt (by a member of the famous Lorimer family as architect) to suit the collection....More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Hill of Tarvit, which offers an interesting overview of life "Upstairs, Downstairs" during the Edwardian period. Each room has its very own character, and we specially appreciated the elegant guest bedroom upstairs. The French-style salon on the ground...More
