Kinross House - Introduction
quote gfx quoteline gfx
At the West End of the Lake [Loch Leven], and the Gardens reaching right down to the very Water's Edge, stands the most beautiful and regular Piece of Architecture, (for a private Gentleman's Seat) in all Scotland, perhaps, in all Britain, I mean the House of Kinross.
Daniel Defoe, celebrated author of Robinson Crusoe (1772)
