Photo of Hill of Tarvit Mansion & Garden

Hill of Tarvit is one of Scotland’s finest Edwardian mansionhouses, replete with a splendid collection of antiques, furniture, Chinese porcelain and superb paintings by Sir Henry Raeburn, Allan Ramsay and eminent Dutch artists.

The original 17th-century Wemyss House was remodelled in 1906 by Sir Robert Lorimer for wealthy jute manufacturer Frederick Sharp to showcase his outstanding collection of French, Chippendale-style and locally influenced furniture, porcelain and art accumulated by several generations of the prosperous Sharp family.

Surrounding Hill of Tarvit are some 113 hectares (279 acres) of gardens, woods, open heath and parkland to explore. Robert Lorimer also designed the landscaped gardens, with formal lawns, yew hedging, flowering borders and a sunken rose garden.

One of the property’s major attractions is the original 9-hole hickory club golf course, which is now completely restored, giving golfers a rare opportunity to turn back the clock and enjoy the game as it was played in Edwardian times.
