Roxburghe Estates Office, Kelso, Scottish Borders, TD5 7SF
Floors Castle, the largest inhabited castle in Scotland, is home to the Duke of Roxburghe. Designed and built by William Adam, it was begun in 1721 and transformed by Playfair in 1849 by adding domes and spires. The interiors are filled with outstanding collections of French 17th and 18th century furniture, magnificent tapestries, Chinese and European porcelain and many other fine works of art, enhanced with family photographs and home grown plants. The parkland and gardens overlook the River Tweed and include walled gardens with herbaceous borders and a parterre.

Floors Castle is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"Floors Castle owes much of its attraction for art-lovers to the American heiress Mary Goelet, who married the 8th Duke of Roxburghe in 1903 and brought her outstanding collection of fine art with her. It includes Gobelin tapestries, works by Matisse and Bonnard and a commode which the visiting director of the Louvre recognised as the twin of one in his museum."
