Come and be amazed …

The Scottish Borders home of the Duke of Buccleuch displays an outstanding art collection, with works by Canaletto, Claude, Raeburn, Reynolds, Gainsborough and Ruysdael. Its fine rooms display tapestries, superb French furniture, Sevres and Meissen china and silver.

Meanwhile, Bowhill's magnificent woodlands offer a variety of peaceful walks for people of all ages and abilities, from those wanting a gentle stroll to those seeking a more strenuous challenge. And if walking is not enough, visitors can always try the recently upgraded adventure playground – a firm favourite with children of all ages. During the summer months, the Bowhill ranger service also offers a series of fun activities for children and families, from den building to wildlife monitoring.

Elsewhere, the Courtyard, housed within a number of attractive buildings, has a range of interesting things to see and do. From the Victorian kitchen to courtyard games, gift shop and Minstrel Tearoom, plus Nutty the Squirrel-themed soft play for little ones, there is something here for everyone to enjoy.

Do also be sure to check out the many events that take place at Bowhill throughout the season, including at the excellent Bowhill Theatre -
