To the north of the city, by the Firth of Forth, sits this architectural gem, the ancestral home of the Earl of Rosebery. It houses some superb paintings, French furniture, Sèvres porcelain, intricate tapestries and a Napoleonic collection. Of particular interest are works by Gainsborough, Lawrence and Raeburn as well as a gilded portrait of Napoleon, that sits on his ornate shaving stand. The beautiful grounds look across to Fife and there is an enchanting shore walk nearby that links South Queensferry to the ferry at Crammond. Relax in the charming tearoom that serves civilized fare.
