Information

Robert Waugh, a local joiner, built Harmony Mansion around 1807 and its design was inspired by his house on his allspice plantation in Jamaica. The property was left to the National Trust for Scotland in 1996, having belonged to the Pitman family since 1820. The restored mansion is now let as self-catering holiday accommodation for up to 12 guests and its 1.5 hectare walled garden is open to visitors.
