Raehills is an historic sandstone mansion built by James, the 3rd Earl of Hopetoun towards the end of the eighteenth century. It lies between Dumfries and Moffat in south west Scotland and is part of Annandale Estates.
The impressive four tiered mansion is said to have been based on an Italian villa seen by the Earl whilst on his Grand Tour.
Edinburgh architect Alexander Stevens was commissioned to build the house during the period 1786-92. Additions were proposed by Stevens in 1809 but eventually built to the designs of William Burn between 1829 and 1834. It has an impressive colonaded south front and is Grade 1 listed.
Raehills lies amid an extensive designed landscape which today contains some 200 hectares.
