Lying on the banks of the
Firth of Forth, Abercorn is home to one of
Scotland’s most splendid mansions, Hopetoun House,
the seat of the Marquis of Linlithgow.
The main part of the property was built by Sir William Bruce Kinross in the late 17th century. Its two wings with domed octagonal tower were later added by the famous Adams family. Within is Chippendale furniture and important paintings; without is parkland and formal gardens overlooking the Forth.
