Traquair House is reputedly the oldest inhabited house in Scotland. Owned by the family of Maxwell Stuart, scions of an ancient Scottish royal line, the house is a treasure trove of historical artefacts and records. The car entrance beside the famed “Bear Gates” is approximately 2 miles from Innerleithen and can be reached by taking the B709 to Traquair village and the B7062 in the direction of Peebles.
