There is also the option to stay in the quaint 1 Double Bed Thatched cottage on a B&B basis. Breakfast is served in the Breakfast room overlooking the deer park and includes locally sourced ingedients, some of which is from the Hopetoun Estate itself.
Parkhead House would suit visitors wanting to enjoy an idyllic country retreat in an historic setting. The area is rich with famous buildings including many that have been used as locations for the popular Outlander TV Series.
