Balbirnie is a quite unique, multi-award winning hotel combining understated luxury with superb service and outstanding value. A delightful old Georgian house, Balbirnie is Grade A listed circa 1777, and sits as the centrepiece of a beautiful 400 acre country estate. Personally managed by the Russell family, the emphasis is on the tradition of personal service. Fine food, beautiful surroundings and above all the true warmth of Scottish hospitality create a quite unique setting for today's house guests to enjoy.

Views from the house extend over well-manicured lawns and picturesque gardens to the Balbirnie Park golf course.

Individually designed guest bedrooms and suites, elegantly comfortable public rooms all reflect the splendour inherited from the historic origins of the house.

Located in the Kingdom of Fife, Balbirnie is an ideal base for exploring many historic sights, with St Andrews, Perth and Edinburgh all only a short drive away.

  • Conference and Private Dining Facilities
