I don’t even know where to begin. The Elemis toiletries in the bathrooms, the most perfect power shower I’ve ever experienced, the borders biscuits with the coffee machines, the overly accommodating owners, the aga, the impeccably decorated and kept rooms, the bottles of water at...More

What a wonderful surprise it was when we drove up to this beautiful 500 year old house. We went with another couple and they did the bookings around Scotland. This was definitely the best that they chose. WOW

About
Description
Balmule House has roots and features that stretch back over 500 years yet has a dramatically transformed interior, designed and crafted with every modern convenience. Set amidst 30 acres of grounds just north More of Dunfermline, the ancient Capital of Scotland, Balmule House provides the highest standards of luxury accommodation in opulent surroundings. With several stunning reception rooms, beautiful formal gardens and picturesque views in all directions, we have the perfect venue for your getaway or special occasion. Rarely will you ever find a building with such a rich heritage. Nor will you often see a home with such quality and comfort built into every last detail. To find both in one home is simply unheard of. So while the solid stone walls of this Fife tower house hold the history of every past resident, this is no museum piece. This is a living, breathing home for you to enjoy. Less
