Cross the threshold of Broughton House and enter the world of wellknown Scottish artist E A Hornel, one of the ‘Glasgow Boys’. Open to the public from April 2005 after a period of conservation, this fine 18th-century town house was bought by Hornel in 1901 and became his home and studio. Today, you can admire his paintings and those of his fellow artists throughout the house and gallery. Some of his extensive collection of books are on display in the library, including works by Burns and many books on local history. From the studio follow your gaze out into the enchanting garden, where you too may find inspiration in the light falling across the Dee.

Acquisition details
The E A Hornel Trustees transferred ownership of the house to the Trust in 1997
