More about

The charm of Leith Hall, near Kennethmont in Aberdeenshire, is that it is an intimate family home – a laird’s house on a much more modest scale than grander properties like Crathes or Craigievar. Its importance is that it probably presents a truer picture of Scottish life of the period than any other. The fascination is that it belonged to just one family – the old line of Leith, later Leith-Hay. There were Leiths in Scotland 300 years before James Leith built the house in 1650. The interiors include a fine collection of family portraits, continental paintings and scenes from the family’s illustrious military history.
