Welcome to Floors Castle & Gardens

Welcome to Floors Castle, the largest inhabited castle in Scotland, built for the 1st Duke of Roxburghe in 1721. What you see is an evolving story of a house and gardens with impressions left by succeeding generations. We welcome visitors from near and far to come and enjoy this inspiring castle and its surroundings. From our spectacular Victorian Walled Garden with glasshouses, herbaceous borders and a formal Millennium Garden, to woodland and riverside walks and a delightful cycle trail, there is so much to discover. Families are always welcome and we actively encourage children to explore and have fun during their visit.

We are delighted to offer quality, locally sourced homemade food and produce in the Courtyard Cafe, Terrace Cafe and gift shop, and are proud to stock some of the best produce that Scotland has to offer. We believe Floors Castle and Gardens has such life and charm and very much hope you enjoy your visit.
