<p>Floors Castle in Roxburghshire in the Sottish Borders is the home of the Duke of Roxburghshire. The house was built in the 1720s as a house and may have incorporated an existing Tower House. There were alterations and improvements in the 19th century. It is a substantial stately home. The Ker family, Earls and Dukes of Roxburgh, have held lands in Roxburghshire since the 12th century. The land on which Floors Castle was built came into the possession of Robert Ker of Cessford after the Reformation when the lands of Kelso Abbey were confiscated and redistributed. Until the early 17th century the Scottish Borders were an unstable and lawless area and the ruins of the earlier Roxburgh Castle are situated across the River Tweed. After the &quot;Union of the Crowns&quot;  stability resulted in the opportunity to move from fortified residences to homes. The house is the centre of extensive estates.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/tonyjgilbert-images/">Tony J Gilbert</a> posted a photo:</p>
