Location Summary
We are situated by the village of Markinch, near Glenrothes in the heart of the ancient kingdom of Fife. Our location is approximately an half hour equidistant from Edinburgh and St. Andrews, ideally situated to explore central Scotland. This wonderful Georgian mansion (built in 1777) is set within a 416 acre country estate and is recognised one of Scotland's finest Grade A listed historic houses.
Note Bene
Quite apart from Fife being a golfer's paradise, recreational pursuits abound including fishing, clay pigeon shooting, falconry, water sports and off-road driving - to name but a few. For the less energetic, how about croquet on the lawn? In a broader context, Fife's winding coast and rolling countryside have much of beauty and of historic interest to explore - quaint fishing villages, stately homes, castles and gardens.
Fine Dining On Site
Balbirnie's kitchens have an emphasis on creating dishes which use the freshest produce, are simple and full of flavour.
Balbirnie Park golf course (an undulating par 71 course).
Jogging Running
Jogging trails and woodland walking.
Within the park is Balbirnie craft centre, selling handcrafted jewellery, pottery, leather work, metal work and paintings.
