Floors Castle Duke of Roxburghe

September 2018. East Of Scotland Chauffeur Services. EOSCS had a day in the Scottish Borders with Clients, this is Floors Castle, home of the Duke of Roxburghe, is a country house rather than a fortress. It was built in the 1720s by the architect William Adam for Duke John, possibly incorporating an earlier tower house. In the 19th century it was embellished with turrets and battlements by William Playfair for Duke James. Floors has the common 18th-century layout of a main block with two symmetrical service wings. Floors Castle lies on the River Tweed and overlooks the Cheviot Hills to the south, definitely worth a visit if you are going to Kelso. Stuart M Wight EOSCS
