Traquair Castle is a unique property, located just 30 miles south of Edinburgh. It offers a unique blend of history, family attractions and luxurious accommodation.
Traquair Castle was originally owned by the kings of Scotland. It later became the home of the Earls of Traquair and is still lived in by their decendants, the Maxwell Stuart family. It is well known as the oldest-inhabited and most romantic house in Scotland.
This unique castle offers you accommodation in a choice of three rooms, steeped in history.
Secluded in woodland gardens and forest, less than 30 miles south of Edinburgh, Traquair stands serene; this is one place in Scotland you will always remember with happy affection.
Traquair is Scotland’s oldest inhabited house. It has been lived in for over 900 years and was originally a hunting lodge for the kings and queens of Scotland. John Stuart, 4th Laird of Traquair, was of the Queen's bodyguard to Mary Queen of Scots, who visited the castle in 1566.
Traquair is a destination in itself. We enjoyed touring the museum and looking at the animals. Would certainly return with my family.
