Floors Castle

Floors Castle is the seat of the Duke of Roxburghe. The castle is located near the town of Kelso, and is currently an A listed building.

Floors Castle - Short History

The 1st Duke of Roxburghe employed William Adam to design the present large mansion (the largest in Scotland) which was erected between 1721 and 1726. In 1837-47, William Playfair made alterations to the building, leaving it with a more romantic roofscape. The central block rises four storeys in height, with five in the towers, and is built of random rubble.
