One of Scotland's finest stately homes, this outstanding Georgian mansion house is a unique eg. of Adam design, begun in 1725 by Scottish architect William Adam and completed in 1778 by his son, Robert. Some say this is one of Robert Adam's finest works, complemented by the fine art, period furniture, china and embroidery collections within.

Its idyllic location does not disappoint, set in acres of parkland and gardens with breathtaking views over the lawns and ornamental lake to the Cheviot Hills. A special highlight is the unusual Dutch-style thatched cottage nestled within the North Park. There is also a playground, coffee shop and 3 self-catering properties available for short breaks.
