Explore the painting collection at Hill of Tarvit to discover how a love of golf inspired the owner – Frederick Sharp – to collect Dutch art. Join our curator and one of our specialist guides for an interesting two hour talk and tour of Hill of Tarvit’s painting treasures.

Built by Robert Lorimer in the Scottish Arts and Crafts style, Hill of Tarvit was designed to show off the Sharp's art collection. This tour will reveal the scope of the collection - from Raeburns and Ramsays in the library to a Brueghel in the bedroom - while focusing on the very personal reasons why a couple might invest in art.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Going Dutch: The Painting Collection at Hill of Tarvit are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
