Hospitalfield House

Door open days

Left in trust for the visual arts by artist, estate owner and luminary Patrick Allan-Fraser in 1890, Hospitalfield House has cast a spell on artists, musicians and writers for over 100 years. Most leading Scottish artists have at sometime drawn inspiration from the historic red sandstone building decorated with beautifully detailed carvings and stonework, its tranquil gardens, the unique collection of art and craftsmanship and the fascinating narrative that draws all these aspects together. The original construction of fieldstone and lime mortar walls can still be seen on the South wing where the lime-harl remains visible.

Parking on the driveway, please park with care so as not to obstruct the flow of traffic.

Please note due to the historical nature of the house, there is disabled access to the ground floor only.
