Scotlandâ€™s Oldest Inhabited House
Traquair Castle is a unique property, located just 30 miles south of Edinburgh. It offers a unique blend of history, family attractions and luxurious accommodation.
Traquair Castle was originally owned by the kings of Scotland. It later became the home of the Earls of Traquair and is still lived in by their decendants, the Maxwell Stuart family. It is well known as the oldest-inhabited and most romantic house in Scotland.
This unique castle offers you accommodation in a choice of three rooms, steeped in history.
Secluded in woodland gardens and forest, less than 30 miles south of Edinburgh, Traquair stands serene; this is one place in Scotland you will always remember with happy affection.

Our main atractions are the maze and the brewery
The Traquair Maze was planted in 1981 and is one of the largest hedged mazes in Scotland, covering over half an acre. It is 1/4 mile to reach the centre.
Planted originally with Leylandi Cyprus trees, the maze suffered from an extraordinarily harsh winter in 1983, when over two thirds of the trees died. It was decided to replant with the hardier Beech trees, which has added colour and interest to the maze.
Brewing at Traquair originally took place in the kitchens of the house, but in the early 1700â€™s the present brewery was established in one of the new wings built in 1694.
