Thirlestane Castle

Nestled in the idyllic Scottish Borders, Thirlestane Castle is a magnificent 16th century castle set in a meadow landscape.

Family home to the Duke of Lauderdale, it is one of the oldest and finest castles in Scotland and still remains home to the Maitland family today. Come and see breath-taking 17th century Dunsterfield plasterwork ceilings, one of the largest collections of family portraits in Scotland and nurseries full of historic toys.

After touring the magnificent State Rooms, you can visit our tearoom for a light lunch or sweet treat. Woodland and riverside walks are available within the grounds, as well as a children's playground.
