Built in 1650 by James Leith, Leith Hall was very much a family home, lived in, used and altered to meet the family’s needs for nearly three hundred years.
During World War I the hall was used as a military hospital. The hall, gardens, wider estate and much of the original collection came to the NTS in 1945.
Never having been sold and remaining in the same family for ten generations, it offers a rare glimpse of the changing aspirations, needs and tastes of the middle-ranking gentry and a fascinating insight into the Leith-Hay family.
A typical Scottish laird’s residence brimming with family treasures, Leith Hall is set in a scenic estate containing a beautiful garden that overlooks some of Aberdeenshire’s finest rolling countryside.
Leith Hall can be visited by guided tours only. Tours depart approximately every 45mins during opening hours.
