Overview

Berwickshire was always said to have more mansions than any other county in Britain”. Between the mid-18th and late-19th centuries well over 100 country houses were built in this area. They included some of the grandest in Scotland by some of its most famous architects, but during the 20th century a quarter were demolished and many more converted to other uses. This exhibition traces the rise, decline and continued significance of ‘the Berwickshire country house’.

Admission is free, donations welcome.
