Duns TD11 3PP

Manderston is the supreme country house of Edwardian Scotland; the swan-song of its era. A house on which no expense was spared with opulent staterooms, the only silver-staircase in the world and extensive 'downstairs' domestic quarters. Visitors will find much to enjoy including Britain's first privately-owned Biscuit Tin Museum.

The magnificent picture gallery, the largest in a Scottish country house, exhibits over 70 paintings from the National Galleries of Scotland and the fully restored working Georgian kitchen is complete with active charcoal stoves and baking oven.
