Mellerstain House is one of Scotland's grandest Georgian houses and was designed and built by William and Robert Adam, who also built nearby Floors Castle. It continues to be the residence of the Earl and Countess of Haddington. 

The interior decoration is opulent in a way that only the Georgians knew how to do. The rooms retain their period colour schemes, with ornate ceilings, marble busts, lots of original furniture and a large collection of paintings by Van Dyck, Ramsay, Gainsborough and many more. See how the other half lived! 

There are extensive parklands around Mellerstain house, including and Italian-styled terraced garden and a cute looking cottage with a thatched roof that looks like it should be in a fairytale book.
