The hunting lodge

Commissioned in 1734 by James 5th Duke Hamilton, the William Adam designed Hunting Lodge was built as a Kennel for the Duke's hounds and horses. In 1987 the lodge was restored to its former glory and reopened as a visitor attraction.

The West Wing of the lodge contains the Banqueting room, Duke's room and Duchess Room, which are all open for public viewing.

The Cadzow Gallery is home to a programme of arts and photographic exhibitions throughout the year. Details are highlighted within our events guide.

The gardens surrounding the hunting lodge contain an original design Parterre garden, traditional bowling green, and herbaceous border which were created by the Duke's gardener John Hossack in 1740.

The plants within this 18th century garden were not only grown for their beauty and fragrance but also for their medicinal and culinary virtues.
