Monteviot House

Monteviot House is home of the Chief of Clan Kerr, the 13th Marquis of Lothian. The house overlooks a sweeping curve of the River Teviot. The present house began as a lodge built by the 1st Marquis in the early 18th Century and was added to by successive generations. It has been lived in by soldiers, diplomats, statesmen, artists and farmers, all of whom have left their mark. It has also acted as a convalescent hospital during the war and a rest home for missionaries thereafter. The Gardens are held in high regard. Extending to some thirty acres, they surround the House itself, spilling down over lawn and through woodland onto the flood plain of the river below.
