Our own children are also now enjoying this experience.Mark Muller QCOver 900 years Traquair has witnessed extraordinary events in Scotland’s history and 27 monarchs have passed through its doors. Over the past fifty years Traquair has also welcomed many thousands of visitors from all over the world to share its unique heritage and to enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of its grounds and woodlands.We continue to expand our activities, events and exhibitions to allow everyone whatever their age to enjoy their experience here and make this house relevant to the 21st century.Isabella and CharlotteMost recently with my husband Mark, Traquair now hosts the Beyond Borders International Festival and has become a meeting place and retreat centre for world cultures to try and resolve conflicts, spend time with their fellow thinkers and allow a cross fertilisation of ideas to take place. Just as once it was a place of refuge during conflicts today we hope it will be a place where conflicts can be brought out in the open and work towards their resolution. www.traquair.co.uk
