Hill of Tarvit

Hill of Tarvit is a comfortable mansion amidst attractive Fife countryside a few miles south of Cupar. Small parts of the home date to the 1600's, but most of today's building was designed by Sir Robert Lorimer in the early 20th century for Frederick Sharp, a businessman who made his fortune in the jute industry. The National Trust for Scotland have restored the interior to how it looked in Sharp's lifetime, with attractive grounds encompassing hilltop and forest walks, gardens and even a restored Edwardian golf course. Before you leave, ask about the key for visiting nearby Scotstarvit Tower, built by previous owners of the Tarvit estate.
