Overview

We are offering people the opportunity to become part of Scotland’s history, as you can add your very own stitch to the welcome panel which will be on display at the new Great Tapestry of Scotland visitor centre, which will open in Galashiels in Spring 2021.

The tour makes its stop at Traquair House, Still Room on 9 and 10 May, 11:00 to 17:00 – Scotland’s oldest inhabited house, dating back to 1107 and lived in by the Stuart family since 1491. Originally a royal hunting lodge, Traquair played host to 27 Scottish Kings and Queens, including Mary Queen of Scots, and later as staunch Catholics the family supported the Jacobite cause.
