Bowhill, 5 Star as standard

Fresh from the success of achieving 5 stars in the Visit Scotland Grading Scheme and the first ever International Clan Scott gathering, Bowhill is gearing itself up for a great year of group visits.

The Scottish Borders home of the Duke of Buccleuch is internationally recognised for its outstanding art collection with works by Canaletto, Claude, Raeburn, Reynolds, Gainsborough and Ruysdael. Its fine rooms display tapestries, superb French furniture, Sevres and Meissen china and silver.

However, this year it is not only the indoors creating an interest. Part of an ancient royal hunting forest - Bowhill provided much poetic inspiration for Sir Walter Scott and William Wordsmouth - ranger led tours cover the gardens at Bowhill or can take visitors around Bowhill’s magnificent woodlands with its variety of peaceful walks.

Trish Gray, House Manager says “more visitors want to experience Bowhill as a whole including
the Victorian Kitchen, James Hogg Exhibition and the landscape, this really helps to bring their
visit to life.”
