Tomorrow marks a momentous day for the House of the Binns, as it reopens its doors to the public following extensive conservation work. The National Trust for Scotland has been caring for the 17th-century country house since 1944, and this reopening is part of the charity's ten-year strategy to make 'Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone' available to all.
Kathleen Dalyell, widow of Tam Dalyell, a former member of Parliament, expressed her satisfaction with the project, "It is with a great sense of satisfaction and appreciation of the continuity of life through difficult times that I see the fruits of this past year’s labours by the trust." She went on to describe the improvements made to the heating and electrical systems, along with the redecoration and re-display of the collection.
