The feature which attracts most people is the formal walled garden originally laid out in 1675 by Sir Alexander Seton. The National Trust for Scotland set about re-creating the gardens following designs dating from the 17th century in the 1950's and today there are over 5-miles of box hedging arranged in intricate patterns to form six parterres. The Museum of Farming Life within the grounds has an extensive collection of domestic and agricultural implements from a bygone era. Within the house there is the gift shop and tea-room.
