As a guide, we recommend allowing approximately 2 hours in total for a group visit. This allows 45 minutes for a guided tour of the historic house followed by time to view the gardens, browse the shop and visit the exhibition in the Visitor Centre. Additional time is recommended for catering.

Ochiltree's Dining

Ochiltree’s cafe serves delicious morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon tea. Coach parties are welcome to use the facility for refreshments without entry to the historic house, but pre-booking from our Group Catering Packages is essential. You can have a look at the different options by downloading the Catering Group Packages.
