Monteviot House & Gardens has launched its inaugural winter light trail event, Monteviot Lights, illuminating the natural beauty of the Scottish Borders. This captivating spectacle promises to be a magical experience for families and visitors of all ages.
Monteviot Lights is a unique opportunity to witness the first lighting and audio spectacle in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Unlike traditional light installations, Monteviot Lights embraces the natural backdrop of Monteviot Gardens, accentuating the beauty of nature itself. Visitors are in for a treat, with an unforgettable evening of wonder and enchantment.

This captivating outdoor illuminated journey unfolds within Monteviot House's spectacular gardens as dusk settles over the historic grounds. Starting at Harestanes Visitor Centre, you'll walk a 1.5km route through beautifully lit gardens and woods. Creative lighting brings nature to life, complemented by breathtaking soundscapes. Pass through the magic doorway to encounter a symphony of twinkling lights, casting a spellbinding glow. Each step reveals a new spectacle, inviting you to immerse yourself in the ethereal ambience. Follow the illuminated pathway winding through the grounds, leading to a captivating winter fairytale. Visitors are invited to take their time and to enjoy locally sourced food and drink also available at the event.

Tickets are sold in 15-minute timeslots. There is parking as you arrive at Harestanes Visitor Centre, and you can enjoy food and drink along with toilet facilities. Support small local businesses like Buy Design Gallery, Out-There Artisan, Rub-A-Dug-Dug, Harestanes Glass Studio, and Mary’s Dairy, all based at Harestanes Visitor Centre.
