Hill of Tarvit Mansionhouse & Garden

KY15 5PB

This fascinating mansion house, built in 1906, reflects the period 1870 - 1920 when Scotland was the industrial workshop of the world. The house was designed by Sir Robert Lorimer as a showcase for a collection of Flemish tapestries, Chinese porcelain and bronzes, French and English furniture, paintings by Raeburn, Ramsay and eminent Dutch artists, all acquired by a Dundee 'jute baron'.

Although built as a treasure house, the intimate scale gives Hill of Tarvit all the warmth of a family home. The beautiful gardens are perfect for a leisurely stroll, while the more energetic can tackle the walk up to Hill of Tarvit viewpoint.
