It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Roxburghe Estates web-site, which gives a short insight into the many activities available on the estate. Over the last 20 years, I have endeavoured to expand the Estates operations into the more commercial tourist related areas, which complement the stunning Borders countryside I and my family are fortunate enough to live in.
In 1977, we opened Floors Castle to the public and last year welcomed our millionth visitor. It is very much our family home and I am sure you will love visiting if you get the chance, and sample some of our Chef's cooking in the newly refurbished Coffee shop.
The Roxburghe Hotel has been a great success as a comfortable relaxed Country House Hotel and now has the enormous cachet of the superb Roxburghe Golf Course in its grounds. I have been delighted by the terrific response from all golfers who have played it, and it will only get better and better.
I am extremely lucky to have inherited such a fabulous estate in one of the most beautiful parts of Britain, and I hope you will come and enjoy what we have to offer.
The Duke of Roxburghe
