Scotland's Oldest Inhabited House is well worth a visit. However, during the winter months the house is closed but you can visit the grounds which are great. There is an amazing maze at the rear of the house and if you are visiting out of school holidays then you have the place more or less to yourselves.
The first time we visited the maze, we spent over an hour trying to find the centre without success. We then came back out and looked at the notice board at the entrance to the maze. At the very top there was something which looked like a QR code and we realised it was a map! We photographed it then followed the map to the centre, where we had our picnic! Definitely a lot easier with the map.
There is a great play park and lots of woodland walks. During winter the cafe is closed as as the toilets, but if you knock on the office door they will let you use their facilities.
