Kirkhill Mansion

4 star rating Shank Bridge

Gorebridge Midlothian EH23 4LJ

The Mansion's magical setting makes it ideal for spending Hogmanay in Edinburgh.

Before you start balking at the fact that itís some 9 miles south of the centre, thereís some truly exceptional perks including an outdoor Jacuzzi and activities like archery and falconry to keep you amused.

Although a good 25 minutes drive from Edinburgh City Centre, and all the hectic goings-on of Princes Street, the A7 location makes it a doddle to find; the 30-acre estate in which it stands are rural not remote Ė which is a considerable bonus when the snow arrives in December.

The property is a gorgeous Italianate mansion and although itís mid-Victorian origins make the claims of a ĎTemplarí heritage somewhat spurious, the mansion still possesses a chivalrous period charm Rosslyn Chapel is just a 10 minute drive.
