400 years of history to discover
Built in 1664, Murrayshall House was originally owned by Sir Andrew Murray (son of First Lord Balvaird and brother of David Murray, the Second Lord of Balvaird and Fourth Viscount of Stormont). His family became known as the Graham-Murrays and they stayed in the house for 260 years.
Murrayshall House was modernised in the 18th century and again in 1864. The property continued to change hands following various family tragedies. Then in 1973, a group of businessmen bough the house and decided to make the most of the expansive land. They transformed the estate and created the luxury hotel you see today. The direct descendants of the Graham-Murrays (the Earls of Mansfield) remain in the Perthshire area – more than 400 years later. They dwell in Scone Palace just a few miles from Murrayshall.
