The four public rooms can be easily adapted to accommodate conferences and meetings and complimentary WIFI is available throughout the house. The Drawing Rooms are delightful and welcoming with patios and balconies overlooking the gardens and parkland. Both rooms are perfect settings for an exquisite vintage afternoon tea, whisky and gin tastings or drinks on a warm, summer evening. The Music Room, one of the finest rooms of its age in Scotland, was designed as a library and is completely surrounded with original, unpainted wood panelling and an impressive ceiling decorated with Rococo swirls.
