Especially interesting for the architectural features of the Palladian residence, the collection of portraits by Scottish painter Allan Ramsay, and landscapes pictures by Norrie.
The house can only be visited with guided tours, so the experience is probably dependent in part on the personality of the tour guide.
The empty library is a sad sight, as is the fabric of the property, which is officially kept as is to show visitors the conservation work involved with the keeping of this kind of property.
Plenty of areas are still in need of great TLC and more could be made of the various aspects of the property (for example the video crammed in one stable is not practical for the number of visitors).
Overall still worth the visit, especially on a nice day to enjoy the policies.
