Welcome to Monteviot

"Welcome to Monteviot, my family home, and the official home of the Marquis of Lothian and the Kerr family. Unlike many other historic homes Monteviot is not a sort of museum or art gallery but a living breathing family residence surrounded by much loved gardens. My family are very fortunate to live amongst wonderful works of art and furniture collected over the generations including my own. I hope that through this website you might in some way also be able to enjoy them all." - Lord Lothian
