The present house was built by Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Cumming Dewar in 1876. From 1923 until 1963 the estate was used as the Royal Hospital for Nervous Disorders following which it became the base for Civil Defence until 1972. In 1982 it was designated as Scotland's second country park, a most attractive and greatly appreciated public asset.
