About the neighbourhood
Easter Balgedie is a small rural hamlet made up of just a few houses and a couple of farms. There are little lanes to stroll along and a farm track that leads up to the Lomond Hills at the back and another that takes you to Loch Leven at the front. Although in a rural, tranquil setting, Balgedie House is a perfect base from which to explore the heart of Scotland. There's the Fife villages & beaches & Edinburgh, Perth, St Andrews & Stirling are all close by. Golfers have many top courses to choose from, walkers & cyclists & outdoor sports are well catered for, & there are many arts, culture & historical activities too. Despite all the area has to offer, you may wish to simply enjoy the House, garden & its views & not go anywhere at all!
How to get there
From the South, leave the M90 (Edinburgh to Perth) at Junction 6, take the exit through Kinross, following signs to Loch Leven's Larder and travel about 4 miles east on the A911, Kinross to Glenrothes road. From the North, leave the M90 (Perth to Edinburgh) at junction 7, take the exit through Milnathort, travel about 4 miles southeast on the A911, Milnathort to Glenrothes road. Driving along the A911. After passing the Easter Balgedie 'Drive Carefully' sign, Balgedie House is the first driveway on the left, through stone and black wrought iron gates. Continue up the drive, all the way to the top. From the other way along the A911, pass through Kinneswood & then, at Easter Balgedie, the drive is the last on the left.
