Group Visits

Discover the story of Mellerstain and experience one of Scotland’s finest stately homes. Built in the 18th century, Mellerstain is a unique example of William and Robert Adam design, presenting a complete picture as it would have been some 240 years ago.  The house features magnificent plasterwork, marble fireplaces and original Robert Adam ceilings, together with a fine collection of art, furniture and embroidery.  The gardens feature the stunning Italianate terraces designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield in 1910.

Group visits and guided tours  can be arranged during & outwith normal opening hours by prior reservation.  With 4 floors of the house to visit a tour with one of our experienced guides will last up to 1½ hours. We suggest group organisers allow 3 hours if wishing to visit the gardens and café (catering options available upon request).
