Beautiful Bowhill Tour

Approximately one hour 15 minutes

Discover all that is best about Bowhill. This tour provides an informative look at the collections and the Buccleuch Family.

Highlights Tour
12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.*
Approximately 45 minutes with extra time at the end in the miniatures collection room if desired.

This tour will tell the story of the family by looking at some of the objects associated with them and which they have collected over the years. The focus will be on portraits and paintings in the House, so if you’re a furniture historian or porcelain fanatic, this tour is probably not for you! However, it’s perfect for visitors with limited time, limited mobility, or families.

*On Sundays in August and September, the final tour will be at 2pm.
