Kinneil House

[Kinneil House]

Kinneil House is the centrepiece to a large estate close to the south side of the Forth estuary at Bo'ness. A small museum gives the history of the estate and town, and is accessible most days, all year round along with the exterior of the main house. But it's the interior of the house, open on a few days each year, where it really gets interesting, with the wonderful painted walls and ceilings the main highlight. The grounds are worth investigation too, with a Roman fortlet, ruined church and woodland walks to explore.
