Kirroughtree House is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"The Heron family came to Britain with William the Conqueror and held this land for five centuries. In the fourteenth century the Herons supported Robert the Bruce who granted them lands around Kirroughtree after a series of victories over the English. In 1719 Patrick Heron, a wealthy livestock trader, built Kirroughtree House. When his line died out in 1873, the new owner, an army major, gave Kirroughtree the Victorian aspect it retains today."
