The castle also boasts one of the largest private collections of Raeburns in the world.
There’s an equally impressive collection of fine furniture, tapestries, arms and armour throughout the castle’s vast chambers, and a great stone wheel-staircase – the finest of its kind in Scotland.

You can also enjoy the restored racquets court and bowling alley, as well as the ice house, bird hide and restored earth closet.
