History[edit] Originally known as Priestfield, the site was once a wealthy monastery, founded in 1150 by Henry, Earl of Northumbria.[5] Over the subsequent centuries, the estate changed hands many times, until when newly in the possession of the Catholic Dick family, the monastery was in the 1670s burned down by Protestant students. The Family quickly enlisted William Bruce to design a replacement building, which was renamed Prestonfield. In 1751 the house was inherited by Sir Alexander Dick[6] from his elder brother William and his eccentric wife Anne Dick.The Dick family continued to modify and improve the estate, adding paintings, a grand new staircase with reception rooms, and a porte-cochère. Most notably, the stable house was built in the 19th century, as designed by James Gillespie Graham. The estate was converted for use as hotel in the 1960s, and in 2003, the hotel was bought by restaurateur James Thomson.
