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 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 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 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.

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.

Reviews

My thanks also go to you for all of your efforts in organising the event. It was roaring success so thanks again.

Port Brae Wealth Management - Oct '16

Thank you so very much for all your kindness in entertaining us so beautifully whilst we were on the borders! Delicious food, and always a joy for everyone to go to a private house.

Private Group - Jul '16

I have just briefly spoken to the guide on the way back and he was absolutely thrilled, so they will definitely come back with their 2 tours in 2017.  Many thanks for your great organisation, I must keep this in mind for other groups because Traquair House seems to be the perfect location for anyone with a slightly higher budget than our the normal tours and those groups would spend a wonderful time there.
