Visit Boleskine House

Travel restrictions due to Covid–19 have now been lifted in Scotland. This means that The Boleskine House Foundation may open periodically for guided tours.

Please be aware that due to limited staffing, our opening hours are changing with relative frequency. For the most up–to–date information regarding our hours, please email us at [email protected] or find us on Google Business.

Boleskine House is currently closed for tours

Due to ongoing construction work on site and limited staffing of our tour guides, Boleskine House is closed to visitors until further notice. Please be advised that due to Boleskine House still being in ruinous condition and now well under construction, all visitors must supervised on the estate by one of our staff. If you wish to visit Boleskine House, we ask interested parties to enquire in advance by emailing us at [email protected] to ensure that one of our staff can be available for your visit. Due to considerable time constraints demanded of the project currently, we cannot promise that impromptu visits can be accommodated. 

We may ask all visitors to sign a copy of our House Rules (see below). All visitor must check–in with Track and Trace per current government guidlines regarding Covid–19.

Visitors are asked to make a £10 donation towards restoration costs, but any further amount is welcomed and appreciated. Payment can be made on our website via PayPal or by card or cash on site at the time of your visit. The £10 donation will go towards forwarding our mission to make Boleskine House wind and watertight this year!

Please note that all enquiries are treated as requests only and access is granted at the discretion of the board of trustees.
