History of Netherurd estate
In 1942 Netherurd Estate was acquired by Major Edward Thomson, an Edinburgh shipping business owner.
Thomson had previously bought the neighbouring estate of Castlecraig which had been used as an auxiliary hospital for war wounded. His wife Betty was the first leader of the West Linton Guides in 1924.
In 1944 Edward and Betty allowed the Girl Guide Association Scotland (now known as Girlguiding Scotland) to use Netherurd House and garden for a nominal rent. In 1952 he gave the house and part of the grounds to Girlguiding Scotland outright as a training centre. Edward Thomson died in 1977 and Betty a year later. They had no children.
The owners of Netherurd Garden House have a successful background in short-term holiday rentals in Edinburgh city centre.
In March 2020, when the first COVID-19 lockdown was announced, many health and social care companies were left with no way to provide support to their Service Users, due to venues and community properties closing.
The owners of Netherurd Garden House responded to the pandemic situation in collaboration with two care companies that provide community-based support.
Their goal was to retrofit several of their short-term rental properties to serve as respite units where carers could take Service Users to provide life skills and activities.
Today, the owners have carefully designed and renovated Netherurd Garden House and transformed the Garden House and Grounds to offer a unique experience for inclusive accessible holiday destinations for families and groups.
