Mellerstain – famously celebrated as one of Robert Adam’s finest works

One of Scotland’s finest stately homes, this outstanding Georgian mansion house set in acres of parkland is a unique example of Adam design, begun in 1725 by Scottish architect William Adam and completed in 1778 by his more famous son, Robert.  Some say this is one of Robert Adam’s finest works.
