Discover Generations of Family History at House of the Binns
The House of the Binns is the historic home of the Dalyells family, among them General Tam Dalyell who raised the Royal Scots Greys here in 1681. Four of the main rooms have important moulded ceilings, some of the earliest examples in Scotland. The collection of furniture mostly dates from the 18th and 19th century, also an excellent collection of family portraits and an interesting collection of porcelain. The Bible, sword and other memorabilia of General Tam are on display. The grounds have panoramic views, woodland walks and peacocks.
