Traquair House Review

Said to be the oldest continually occupied home in Scotland, Traquair House has secret stairways and passages, a library with more than 3,000 books, and a bed said to be used by Mary, Queen of Scots in 1566. The 18th-century brew house still makes highly recommended ale. You may even spend the night, if you wish. Outside you'll find a maze and extensive gardens. Traquair Fair in August is a major event in the regional calendar.
