The Jewel of Stately Homes in the Scottish Borders

Welcome to Mellerstain, one of Scotland’s finest stately homes, and family residence of the 13th Earl of Haddington.

Mellerstain House and Gardens is owned by The Mellerstain Trust, a Scottish registered charity (SC011009), established in 1987 to maintain the house and gardens, and to continue the development of amenities for public benefit,  both as an educational resource and visitor attraction.

Mellerstain reflected the new-found optimism and stability of an enlightened and prosperous Scotland in the 18th century. As a unique example of William and Robert Adam design, it presents a complete picture of a stately home as it would have been 240 years ago. With exquisite Robert Adam interiors, combined with acres of beautiful parkland, ornamental lake and award-winning gardens, it is a genuine ‘must-see’.

Whether you choose to visit for a day out, holiday in our self-catering cottages, create your  own page of history with a private celebration, wedding or corporate event, or become a Friend of Mellerstain, we thank you for your support in preserving Mellerstain for future generations.
