The house has a fascinating history - it was owned by the same family, the Balfours, for hundreds of years. Robert Louis Stevenson's grandfather.

James Balfour, lived here, and RLS visited and played in the gardens as a child. He mentions Pilrig House in many of his novels, e.g. Kidnapped and Catriona.
