2020 at Floors Castle & Gardens

Welcome to Floors Castle, the largest inhabited castle in Scotland and family home of the 11th Duke of Roxburghe. 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, homemade food and Scottish 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.

Latest from Our Blog

‘Feel closer to Floors’ with our latest blog

At a time of year when we are normally preparing to open our doors to the public, it feels strange to not be welcoming visitors any time soon. However, in this time of uncertainty and social distancing, we thought we'd bring a moment of calm, celebrate the change in seasons, and help our local customers and followers from around the world feel a little closer to Floors. Spring is a busy, yet wonderful time on the estate and there are plenty of good news stories to share. Each week we will be creating a blog on our website for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Terrace café & shop temporary closure

The health of our visitors and staff is our top priority, and to help restrict the spread of the virus, we have today made the decision to close the Terrace shop and deli for the time being. However, we will of course be monitoring the situation closely, therefore please keep an eye on our page for any updates or changes. 

Covid-19 (coronavirus) update

Due to the recent developments regarding Covid-19, and with the best interests of our staff and visitors in mind, it is with regret that we have decided to cancel our Easter weekend opening, tree climbing and fire making activities, which were due to take place between Friday 10th – Monday 13th April. We are currently monitoring the Covid-19 situation and, in light of the evolving situation, please do keep an eye on our social media and website for any updates and changes.
