Bowhill House and Country Estate
Borders, TD7 5ET
The privately owned and run Bowhill is the Scottish Borders home of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch.
Paintings by masters such as Canaletto, Raeburn, Reynolds and Gainsborough line the walls of the many fine rooms, while additional richness is provided by classic tapestries, French furniture, china and porcelain by Sèvres and Meissen, along with a fine collection of silverware.
The gardens are a mix of formal and informal areas, while the terraces give stunning views across the Ettrick Valley.
