If this beautifully situated building could speak it would fill volumes. Dating back to 1107, Traquair House has played host to the kings and queens of the past and is now waiting to welcome guests to enjoy all that Scotland's oldest inhabited house can provide. Traquair has so much to offer; from the various craft workshops, a maze of 1,500 trees and secret stairwells, to the brewery and 1745 Cottage Restaurant - there is something for every member of the family to enjoy and explore. Delve into the history of this onetime hunting lodge and discover stories of Mary Queen of Scots, while relaxing in the present enjoying fine accommodation and plenty to do.

Among its many secrets, Traquair has its own brewery. Originally an 18th-Century domestic brewery supplying the demand of the house and its estate workers, the brewery was disused some time after 1800, until the 20th Laird of Traquair, Peter Maxwell Stuart, rediscovered its previous occupation and re-launched it, offering its wares to a much wider audience in 1965.

Traquair House Ales are now available to buy wholesale and online - the superior flavour of the beer is certainly owed to using no artificial preservatives and utilising the water that runs in the underground streams of the estate.

If all that exploration leaves you in need of rejuvenation, where better to indulge in a spot of rest and relaxation than at the 1745 Cottage Restaurant. Presenting all that is good about home cooking, the restaurant serves up homemade soups and lunches alongside a wealth of home-baked sweet treats - the fluffy scones smothered in jam being my particular favourite. A variety of salads, sandwiches, paninis and jacket potatoes can be savoured at lunchtime, offering a real taste of traditional and simple food. children's portions will keep the little ones happy while a selection of afternoon teas are ideal if you fancy something light - and of course, for those long and lazy afternoons a pint or two of Traquair Ale doesn't go amiss. Simply delightful.
