Adrian John Charles Hope, 4th Marquess of Linlithgow (born 1 July 1946), styled Viscount Aithrie until 1952 and Earl of Hopetoun between 1952 and 1987, is a British noble. His family seat is Hopetoun House, near Edinburgh, Scotland.[1] He was educated at Eton College.

The Marquess's son (the current Earl of Hopetoun) lives in the house and the 4th Marquess lives on the Estate.[2]


Lord Linlithgow is the son of Charles Hope, 3rd Marquess of Linlithgow, and Vivien Kenyon-Slaney (1918–1964).[3]

The current Marquess will eventually be succeeded by his elder son Andrew, Earl of Hopetoun. Andrew is married to Skye Bovill, now Countess of Hopetoun. He is a former Page of Honour to the Queen Mother.[4] Lord and Lady Hopetoun take part in the Queen's carriage procession at Royal Ascot.

The 4th Marquess is the second cousin of the 9th Earl Spencer and, therefore, of late Diana, Princess of Wales for being great-grandchildren of the Duke and Duchess of Abercorn.[5][better source needed]
