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 house is open to the public every July.
