- Scottish roads at there finest. The A82 is one of the best drives in Scotland and this is probably close to it being as far north as it goes at Loch Ness.

- Whiskywheels.scot tour stopped at Glengoyne distillery today.
Highy rated throughout the country, the tour experience at Glengoyne is excellent.
With a whisky tasting at the start and end of their tour, our whisky fans left Glengoyne happy.
Glengoyne is unique in producing Highland single malt whisky matured in the Lowlands. Located upon the Highland Line, the division between the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, Glengoyne’s stills are in the Highlands while maturing casks of whisky rest across the road in the Lowlands.

- Mellerstain House and Gardens (@mellerstainhouseandgardens) is located in Gordon, #Berwickshire . One of #Scotland ’s finest stately homes, this #RobertAdam #masterpiece is a ‘must-see’; complemented by the #fineart , period furniture, china and embroidery collections within.
It's #idyllic location does not disappoint, with acres of stunning parkland, formal gardens, lakeside walks and cafe.
Mellerstain, one of Scotland’s great #Georgian houses was begun in 1725 by #Scottish #architect William Adam and completed in 1778 by his more famous son, Robert. The result is an outstanding example of 18th-century Scottish architecture, and some say one of Robert Adam’s finest works.
The interior decoration is stunning – the ceilings are especially worthy of note, having been preserved in the original Adam colours. There is a superb collection of paintings including works by #VanDyck , #Gainsborough , Aikman and Ramsay with many lovely pieces of period furniture, china and embroidery collections.
The house stands in beautiful parkland and gardens with a playground, cafe and holiday cottages. A must-see is the Italian-styled terraced garden (laid out in 1910 by Sir Reginald Blomfied), designed to offer new perspectives as you descend to the rose gardens, great lawn and ornamental lake.
#Mellerstain House and Garden is free to visit for members of Historic Houses. To find out opening times please go to our website via the link on our Instagram profile page.
