The Scottish Society for Conservation and Restoration has a number

variety of historic venues in Scotland.

Newhailes House was built in 1686 by the distinguished Scottish

Dalrymple family, a legal and political dynasty who were responsible
for significant improvements and additions to both the house and to
the historically important designed landscape. It came into the care
of the National Trust for Scotland in 1997, and is currently
undergoing a major conservation programme. Contact:
