Marchmont House is an imposing Palladian mansion, built in 1750 by Hugh Hume-Campbell, the third Earl of Marchmont. The interiors at Marchmont are arguably one of the finest in Scotland, and the house retains many of its original features, including the magnificent George II period plasterwork by Thomas Clayton, the pre-eminent plasterer of the time. Major changes were made between 1914 and 1917 when the then owner, Robert Finnie McEwen commissioned the eminent Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer to enlarge the house.

Visiting Marchmont House offers an immersive experience for those with an interest in different historical periods of decoration and craftsmasnhip. The current occupier, entrepreneur and philanthropist Hugo Burge, recently promoted a stunning seven-year restoration awarded with the 2018 Historic Houses/Sotheby’s Award, which not only made the house open for visits but brought it alive as a home for makers and creators. The creative project has resulted in on-site work spaces destined for craftspeople and artists.
