Imbued with tradition and splendour, Gilmerton House has passed through thirteen generations of the Kinloch family. Soon after obtaining Gilmerton House, Sir Francis Kinloch became Lord Provost of Edinburgh and, in 1686, he was named a baronet of Gilmerton. Almost two centuries later, the current owner and 13th baronet of Gilmerton, Sir David Kinloch, returned to the estate in 1980. The house required extensive renovations to bring it up to its former glory whilst equipping it with an extremely effective eco-friendly biomass boiler system. This fortuitous alteration adds to the warmth and comfort that Gilmerton House emanates today.
