Leith Hall, Garden & Estate

Lush furnishings, eccentric curios and beautiful grounds

  • Discover one family’s story over ten generations.

  • Don’t miss the ‘boxing squirrels’ and a giant turtle shell from Ascension Island. 

  • Wander through the beautiful garden, with its zig-zag paths, spiral-cut lawns, a moon gate and lichened steps.

  • Take a walk on any of the three waymarked trails to see a brilliant variety of wildlife.

Leith Hall has played witness to Scottish history since 1650. Ten generations of the Leith-Hay family lived here until just after World War II. They donated the house to the National Trust for Scotland along with all their furnishings and art, making it one of the most complete collections in our care.

Feast your eyes on lush furnishings and eccentric curios, and don’t miss a walk in the grounds. Leith Hall has the highest altitude garden in the Trust, at 186m above sea level – the views are wonderful.
