Activities in Traquair Grounds

Traquair grounds are the perfect setting your delegates to enjoy a day of activities or a day of team building.  We do try to accommodate every request as best we can so if you have an idea that is not listed please do get in touch.

The Wine Glass Lawn and Avenue

The wine glass lawn is approximately 200m x 50m and is a perfect setting for activities taking place in front of the house.

The tree lined grassed avenue is 3/4 mile in length and slopes gently down from the Bear Gates to the front of the house. Activities such as mini highland games, falconry displays and team building activities have taken place on the wine glass lawn and avenue.

The Walled Garden

The old walled garden near the 1745 Cottage Restaurant is a perfect area for smaller activities and Bar-B-Q's and informal lunches. Marquees may be erected here and the garden can be hired for exclusive use outside house opening hours.

The Maze and Woodland Walks

The Maze and woodland areas are both suitable for team building exercises, treasure hunts and other activities. The woodlands lead to the River Tweed where trout and salmon fishing can be arranged in season.

The Avenue Field

We have access to a large 16 acre field on the left of the main drive which can be used for clay pigeon shooting, quad bikes and other activities that require greater space. In addition a large part of the field is level and has been laid with hard core to make parking suitable in all weathers.
