About Gilmerton House

A hidden gem in our property collection, Gilmerton House is a warm and welcoming Georgian mansion, situated in the heart of East Lothian. Home to the Kinloch family for thirteen generations, Gilmerton House is an exclusive-use country estate that marries old-world tradition with a touch of modernity and a sustainable ethos. This majestic house features ten luxurious, en-suite bedrooms, six exquisite reception rooms and a stunning billiards room. Guests can enjoy the expansive grounds and woodland trail, a range of garden games, and the brand new 200-yard par 3 driving range.

Our history

It's All in the Family

Steeped in tradition and grandeur, this estate is a unique offering in our property collection. It’s undergone a myriad of developments at the hands of thirteen generations of the Kinloch family. Soon after acquiring Gilmerton House, Sir Francis Kinloch became Lord Provost of Edinburgh and, in 1686, he was named a baronet of Gilmerton. Almost two centuries later, the current owner and 13th baronet of Gilmerton, Sir David Kinloch, returned to the estate in 1980, finding the house in disrepair and in dire need of an upgrade. His first decision was to install an incredibly effective and environmentally friendly biomass boiler system. Thanks to this one development, the warmth and comfort that Gilmerton House exudes today plays a significant role in the welcoming feeling you experience as you walk through the door.
