Skirling House


Skirling, Biggar, Lanarkshire, ML12 6HD

    In Skirling House, you sense the extraordinary.

    Little has changed over the years with delightful original features at every turn, from a spectacular 16th Century drawing room ceiling to more informal Arts & Crafts design elsewhere in the house. Yet it is styled with contemporary flair and equipped with the facilities you want for a relaxed time in the country. Outside, beyond the croquet lawn and tennis court, the garden and woods stretch towards the rolling fields of the Borders countryside.
