Dawyck House

Dawyck House is a historic house at Dawyck, in the parish of Drumelzier in the former Peeblesshire, in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland. The alternative name is 'Dalwick House'. Canmore ID 49816.

Dawyck Castle was built about the Thirteenth century and belonged to the Veitch family until the mid Sixteenth century when the estate and barony passed to the Balfours. Dawyck was demolished in 1830 and the Dawyck House mansion was erected on the same footprint. The current house has been protected as a Category B listed building since 23 February 1971.[1]

The grounds of the house are now operated as Dawyck Botanic Garden, a "regional garden" of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Dawyck Chapel is in the grounds of the botanic garden.
