House of the Binns

Set in beautifully landscaped parkland overlooking the River Forth, this fascinating laird’s house near Linlithgow has been the home of the Dalyells for over 400 years. The present house was built in 1612 by Thomas Dalyell, an Edinburgh merchant who made his fortune at the court of King James VI and I in London.

Thomas’s son, General Tam Dalyell, formed the legendary regiment of Royal Scots Greys. There are many mementos of him in the house, as well as colourful legends about his dealings with the Devil to discover.

The house contains an interesting collection of family portraits, furniture, porcelain and silver acquired over several generations.

A warm welcome awaits visitors at the home of the Dalyells, with rooms rich in family history and personality.
