The Marquis of Tweeddale commissioned James Smith to build the house in 1697. He was assisted by Alex McGill but it was not completed until 1728. However,it has often been remodelled; by Wm. Adam & also his son Robert & again in 1877 by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson. It is said to have 85 rooms. For 30 years until his death in 2007 it was the home of composer Gian Carlo Menotti and presently is on the market for sale.There is a great variety of magnificent trees in the estate.
