Discover The Magic of Thirlestane Castle
Set in the Scottish Borders at Lauder, Thirlestane Castle has its origins in the 13th century. It was rebuilt as the Maitland family home in 1590 and greatly enhanced by the Duke of Lauderdale in the 1670s. In 1840, it was extended and refurbished with the addition of two new wings.
Please note that Thirlestane Castle will not be open to visitors in 2013 owing to remedial works. The grounds will be open as usual, for which parking charges will apply.
Thirlestane Castle The Duke's Grand Bed Chamber

The Maitlands are a famous Scottish family who first came to Britain from France with William the Conqueror. As the seat of the Earls and Duke of Lauderdale, the Castle has at times held a central role in the history of Scotland. Now in the care of a Charitable Trust, Thirlestane has been carefully restored to its former splendour.
