Historic Broomhall House near Limekilns to be offered as ‘world class’ venue for movies, product launches, fine dining, VIP and corporate events.

IT’S the “home of the family of King Robert the Bruce” – and it’s being opened up by the Earl of Elgin for conferences, fine dining and as a film location.

Broomhall House, set in 2,500 acres of private estate near Limekilns, dates back to 1702 and is available as a high-end venue for everything from banquets and political summits to product launches, driving the latest supercar and shooting period dramas.

Guests flying in by helicopter can land in the grounds, taste the finest clarets from the wine cellar and admire the fireplace made from the marital bed of King James VI, while on-site security can “protect high-profile individuals”.

The website explains: “The family of Bruce, a name linked to valour and legend throughout Scottish history, has lived at Broomhall House for centuries.

“Now, for the first time, this extraordinary home can be enjoyed by the wider world for exclusive use private events, corporate hire and as an unparalleled film location.”

It is currently the home of Andrew Bruce, the 11th Earl of Elgin and 15th Earl of Kincardine, who is 93, and his wife, Lady Elgin.

Broomhall Home Farm Partnership, which is also involved in plans to build 2,150 homes on Lord Elgin’s estate, has applied to Fife Council for permission to change the use of the house to a conference and hospitality centre.

It said the historic home had “witnessed the ebb and flow of significant moments of British history” and was recently refurbished and reappointed to the highest standards.
