The 25 acres surrounding the Barony Castle hotel reveals a secret at every turn. The Limes Avenue laid out in the 1620’s was the original impressive entrance to the house and remained such until the 1950’s.
The Ewe Tree Walk leads to the Altar which was built on the site of a 19th century summerhouse, which in turn occupied one of the sites used for private worship by the Murray family during the 17th century.
The last remaining Summerhouse is now a popular wedding backdrop and has also been used as a Hindu temple and a chapel. The Ice House was built for George Murray the 6th Lord Elibank and could hold 11,500 litres of ice collected from the Mill Pond and surrounding streams during the winter months.
The Great Polish Map
The Great Polish Map of Scotland is a unique feature in the Scottish landscape. It is a large physical relief map of Scotland, sculpted in concrete and measuring some 40m by 50m. It stands in the grounds of Barony Castle, Eddleston, once the home of the Murrays of Elibank, and later the Hotel Black Barony. But how did this remarkable artefact come into existence…?
