Huntlyburn House
Huntlyburn House
The original house was known as Toftfield when acquired by Sir Walter Scott in 1817 and renamed Huntley Burn after the burn of that name that runs through the grounds. It is built of local Quarry Hill stone with dressing of red freestone. Huntlyburn House was the Borders Health Board headquarters between 1974 and 1999. A new office extension was built to the rear of the house in 1986 and the property was altered and extended again in 1999 to form a 30-bedded in-patient unit for NHS Borders. Huntlyburn House nowadays provides an in-patient service offering short-term care for people aged 16 and over with mental needs who require 24 hour specialist mental health nursing care.
