Dalmeny House is a stunning stately home that sits near South Queensferry, at the north of Edinburgh city limits. The house is open to the public during the summer months (guided tours are available), and the property remains the family residence of the Earl and Countess of Rosebery. The house has strong links to the Rothschild dynasty and displays many pieces of art from the Rothschild collections. The Fifth Earl of Rosebery was prime minister of the UK from 1894 to 1895 and married Hannah de Rothschild. The house also has a fantastic collection of Napoleonic memorabilia, in fact, it’s probably one of the best such collections in the UK.
The house was completed in the early 19th century and is designed in a Tudor revival style on the exterior. Interiors are very much from the time of building, in a glamorous Regency style.
The house enjoys wonderful views of the Firth of Forth and beyond. Visitors can walk along the shore of the Forth from Crammond to Queensferry. It’s also possible to walk along the Forth Road Bridge if you’d like to extend you walk/run a little further and enjoy some more spectacular views.
