In 1725 George Baillie and his wife, Lady Grisell Baillie, commissioned Scottish architect William Adam to build a new house on the site of an old peel tower. Lady Grisell kept strict accounts for her household, noting every expense for many years. A number of these fascinating volumes are collectively known as Lady Grisell’s Household Accounts’, and their contents offer us an insight into every aspect of daily life in an 18th-century Scottish country house.
