Dalmeny House

UK»Scotland»Lothian»Dalmeny House

When Dalmeny House was completed in 1817, it marked a great departure in Scottish architecture; its Tudor Gothic style, with its highly-decorated chimneys and crenellations, looked back toward fanciful 16th-century English mansions, such as Hampton Court.

With its Gothic Great Hall and corridor, its large, formal regency apartments and its sweeping views across the Firth of Forth, it is a house which combines comfort and romanticism, and which produced many imitations throughout Scotland.

As one wanders through the house, each room opens up a new experience, highlighting different parts of the remarkable collection of art and objects. Yet Dalmeny House preserves the overall feeling of the family home it still is.
