THE launch of the latest supercar, a high security summit meeting of political leaders and the filming for a blockbuster movie could all take place at a "world class" venue near Limekilns. 

Fife Council have given permission for Broomhall House, the Earl of Elgin's palatial pad set in 2,500 acres of private estate, to be used as a conference and corporate hospitality centre. 

A high-end location for capturing everything on camera from fashion shoots to period dramas and must have motors costing millions, it's also available for banquets and fine dining, business celebrations and corporate days out. 

Set in the historic splendour of the “home of the family of King Robert the Bruce”, guests can fly in by helicopter and 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. 

They can also arrange on-site security to “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.”

Dating back to the 18th century, Broomhall House is a three-storey, category A listed building that is home to Andrew Bruce, the 11th Earl of Elgin and 15th Earl of Kincardine, who is 93, and his wife, Lady Elgin. 

Although just half a mile from the A985, it's tucked away from public view, perfect for the "heads of state and royalty that have been entertained here on many occasions". 

The original mansion house has stood for hundreds of years, the west wing extension was completed in 1820 and there's a gun room that dates back to 1865. 

Broomhall Home Farm Partnership 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.

The website states: “With unlimited free parking on site, secure WiFi networks and location security that is second to none, Broomhall is particularly well set up for meetings, conferences, summits or retreats that need to take place in private, away from the public or media gaze, and when there are high security factors to be considered.

“Luxury accommodation and private transport can be arranged for overnight events.

“Our state of the art cyber and on-site security is there to protect high profile individuals should this be required.”

The partnership, which is also involved in plans to build 2,150 homes on Lord Elgin’s estate, submitted the application for a change of use in July and it has now been approved. 

A statement from the family said: "The Bruce Family has taken the decision to make a significant investment in the tourism and hospitality industry – currently the best performing sector of the Scottish economy. 

"Broomhall House has been renovated to provide a world-class asset for corporate and private events, product launches and for film and photography.

"Broomhall House, a Grade A-listed building dating from 1702, is one of the most important examples of country house architecture and the decorative arts in Scotland. 

"Although it was designed originally by Sir William Bruce, it was subsequently remodelled by many leading Scottish architects such as John Adam, William Stark, Sir Robert Rowand Anderson and Charles Heath Wilson, founder of the Glasgow School of Art.

"Following an extensive refurbishment programme, which was carried out by local contractors, the Bruce Family are now working closely with many organisations such as Visit Scotland, Business Gateway Fife and Fife Chamber of Commerce to ensure that Broomhall House will have a positive impact on the economy of West Fife."
