Hopetoun House, on the Firth of Forth near Edinburgh, is the seat of the Marquess of Linlithgow. This lavishly illustrated book offers a tour of the architecture of the house (which was designed by Sir William Bruce in the 1690s and greatly extended by William Adam and his sons beginning in the 1720s), its sumptuously decorated rooms and art collection, and the surrounding landscape and gardens. This volume discusses Hopetoun both as the historic seat of a noble family and as a complex work of art. Written by specialists in the history and art of the period, the text of the book complements photographs of the interiors by Frank Dalton and of the new walled garden by Claire Takacs. In addition, chapters written by members of the family, including Lord and Lady Hopetoun and Lord Alexander Hope, connect the historic place to the present and the future of the estate.
