Leith Hall

[Leith Hall]

After half a decade of closure, Leith Hall opened to the public once again in 2013; the photos here were taken on re-opening day. Originally built in the 17th century for defensive purposes, the property belonged to the Leith family for ten generations. Like so many historic family homes, it was expanded and altered over the years to the more comfortable property you see today. The extensive grounds and gardens are as much of a draw as the house's grand interior (but a bit muddy on our visit).
