Planning your visit

Since 1944, this grand home has been in the care of the National Trust for Scotland on the proviso that ‘the history, legend and memory of the family’ are preserved and that subsequent generations retain the right to live there.

Please note that photography and filming are not permitted inside the House of the Binns but are permitted in the grounds.

The house is open for pre-booked tours only, and visitors are welcome to explore the extensive landscaped parkland on one of the waymarked trails. Look for sheep and a peafowl colony of about 20.

Book your tour

Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead due to livestock.


We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development.

The house tour features uneven flooring and a number of stairs throughout. A video of the upper floor, alongside detailed photographs, has been created for those who remain on the ground level.

We have also created a detailed accessibility guide for House of the Binns.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.
