Home Castle

Welcome to Home Castle. The castle has belonged to the same family for almost 600 years. The present house was built in 1785 and incorporates the walls of a much older castle.

Today the castle remains a private family house, available for exclusive fully serviced weekend, mid-week or weekly rentals. Restored and continually maintained to the highest standard, every original feature is retained, and can be appreciated as intended. All of the modern comforts that one would expect are successfully incorporated without detracting from the character of the house and the relaxed atmosphere which visitors continually comment upon and enjoy so much.

Additional Location Information

The castle is one mile South East of Duns in the eastern Scottish Borders, probably the most accessible part of rural Scotland. The castle stands at the end of a smooth 500 yard private drive in an area of beautifully maintained woodland and grass parks, with distant views to the Cheviot hills. The location is completely rural - there is absolutely no traffic noise and your privacy is assured.
The dramatic cliffs, coves and castles of the coast are fifteen miles to the East, whilst two miles to the North the rich farmland of the Tweed valley changes abruptly to the moorland landscape of the Lammermuir Hills.
The Scottish Borders and Northumberland are rich in historic towns, castles and houses to visit, and this rural setting is packed with opportunities for activities such as cycling, walking, golf, shooting and fishing.
Should you choose to stay at the castle, there is a billiard room, table tennis or croquet on the lawn during the summer. In the grass park, anything from a clay pigeon shoot to a full Highland Games can be arranged.
Any activity suitable for the castle or grounds can be arranged. Bands and pipers may be hired and the ballroom is an excellent place to hold a ceilidh, or any other dancing. There is a billiard room with full-size table and table tennis. Outside, anything from an informal game of croquet on the lawn to clay pigeon shooting to a full Highland Games can be held.
Should you choose to venture away from the castle, the Scottish Borders offer endless opportunity for walking, cycling and historic sights. The castle is also within easy reach of many excellent golf courses (Duns course is only 2 miles away), historic towns, country houses and castles. In season, excellent shooting and fishing is available locally by arrangement.
