Whatever the weather Traquair House has something to offer its visitors. Outside the grounds and woodlands are ideal for walkers and the playground and maze are great for children.
Inside the house is steeped in history dating back to 1107. It has been visited by 27 Kings and Queens including Mary Queen of Scots and played a part in the Jacobite rebellion…it even has its own priests escape hidden inside a cupboard. The house also has an amazing collection of artefacts including letters and embroidery.
Traquair House has belonged to the Stuart family since 1491 and in 1965 Peter Maxwell Stuart re-opened the old brewery that had been disused for 200 years. Visitors can now visit the brewery and sample its ales. As well as all this there is a craft workshop, a garden café and a museum.
You can visit for the day or you can even choose to stay over in one of its rooms.
