Visit Traquair

Kitchen bells

27 Scottish Kings and Queens have visited Traquair; now you are invited to follow in their footsteps...

Whether you are a group, individual or corporate visitor Traquair House has something for everyone to enjoy.

Traquair House offers a wide and exciting range of tours and events throughout the year. Traquair tours range from our free-roaming pass to an exclusive guided tour with Catherine Maxwell Stuart, the 21st Lady of Traquair.

As well as the House, Traquair also has extensive grounds to explore which include the maze that is planted with 1,500 trees! and the play ground of willow tunnels. Take a look at the River Tweed via our webcam!

Why not take lunch in the old walled garden at the 1745 Cottage Restaurant then have a wander through the woodland walk which boasts some of the oldest yew trees in Scotland or take a tour around one of the oldest working breweries in Britain dating back to the eighteenth century where all the delicious Traquair House Ales are available to sample and purchase. Also set in Traquair grounds are several independent craft shops, the Traquair gift shop and the Traquair brewery shop for you to pick a souvenir or two.

Dogs are welcome in the grounds as long as they are on leads at all times (this excludes Traquair Fair).

When the house is open we have a Catholic Mass in the Chapel on the last Thursday of every month.
