  • House of the Binns

    Set in beautifully landscaped parkland, this House overlooks the River Forth. Home to the Dalyell family for 400 years, this was built in 1612 by Thomas Dalyell. The Scottish Renaissance painted wood decoration is a rare and beautiful survival from the earliest period of the house. Outside the grounds are painstakingly beautiful with plenty of plantings to be seen.
