Garallan HouseGarrallan was owned by the Campbell family until 1676 - the Douglas family followed but it became extinct in the male line. Jane Douglas married Hamilton Boswell.

Garrallan House was then owned by Colonel Boswell and later by his son John Boswell , who sold the estate in 1951 to the Stevenson family , who had been long standing tenants of the land on the Garrallan estate.

 


Dr. Patrick Douglas (died 1819), who lived here, also owned property in Jamaica and he offered work to Robert BURNS in 1786 - but the poet declined. Burns was a visitor at Garrallan.
