What is the history of Manderston House and Gardens to the present day?

Manderston was built for Sir James Miller, a nouveau riche baronet who married in to the traditional aristocracy and asked an up and coming Scottish architect, John Kinross, to create a home of glittering style to match his wealth and status as a country gentleman. There are fifty six acres of formal and informal gardens at Manderston, a combination which is unique in Scotland. In spring the lawn in front of the house is studded with daffodils and beyond it is the gateway to the formal garden. Sir James Miller had the gates brought from London and gilded, to catch the light from the setting sun. A gate in the style of eighteenth-century architect, James Gibbs and a portico of spiralled columns add to its grandeur. On the south side of the house, Kinross designed four formal garden terraces still planted out in Edwardian style today.

What is there to see and do at Manderston House and Gardens?

Visitors can view the magnificent silver staircase within the house, and the stables, gardens, woodland gardens and marble dairy are definitely not to be missed.
