About this event

We are holding these open days in association with Scottish Doors Open Days.

Auchinleck House was built between 1755 and 1760 by Alexander Boswell, 8th Laird of Auchinleck (1707-1782) and the father of James Boswell (1740-1795) the celebrated diarist and biographer of Samuel Johnson. It was the third house to be built on an estate granted to Boswell’s forebears in the 14th century.

This is your chance to visit the property, normally closed to the public, and learn more about its rich history.

We welcome picnics in the grounds if the weather is fine and Boswell's Coach House will be open for light refreshments.
