The Park has a long history dating all the way back to the construction of the Antonine
Wall in 142AD. The estate has been gradually developed since the 12th century, eventually
coming into public ownership in the mid-1960s.
The Park is a historically-important designed landscape, listed in The Inventory
of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland. The woodlands and gardens host a
number of interesting historical features including an Arboretum, par 3 golf course,
kids play and summer activities. The house is open to the public for free as a combined
art gallery and museum and there is also a café.
