Winton House



Winton House lands predate the Magna Carta and the Setons built the House before Leonardo da Vinci established his reputation. Their architect, the King's Master Mason, didn't work on ordinary castles and his ornate plaster ceilings are the most elaborate in Scotland. Pencaitland was requisitioned by Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745 when his rebel army camped on the estate and today Pencaitland is the family home of Sir Francis and Lady Ogilvy. 


In the heart of the East Lothian countryside, 45 minutes from Edinburgh Airport and only 30 minutes from the city centre.

Up to 16 guests can stay in Winton's eight unique bedrooms with two-poster or four-poster beds.  26 more can stay in the two 4* and 5* luxury self-catering farmhouses. All bedrooms (or family groups) are allocated a private bathroom and guests are given bathrobes, slippers, towels and toiletries.
