Hopetoun Summer Fair in the grounds of Hopetoun House, near South Queensferry, Scotland.

Hopetoun House, one of the most splendid examples of Georgian architecture in Britain is the traditional residence of the Earl of Hopetoun (the Marquess of Linlithgow). It was built in 1699 and was designed by William Bruce, and extended in 1721 by William Adam. The house is located near South Queensferry to the west of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Set in 150 acres of rolling parkland with extensive woodland walks, breathtaking vistas over the River Forth and a deer park, the magnificent interiors boast fine paintings, original furnishings and décor, tapestries and objects d’art with Aubusson tapestries and fabulous chandeliers in the Ballroom.

Part of the House is still lived in today by the present Marquess and his family. The House, however, is owned and managed by an independent, charitable trust created in 1974 by the current Marquess and his father in order to preserve the House with its historic contents and surrounding landscape for the enjoyment and education of the public for all time.
