Born in 1954, Sir Guy David Innes Ker, 10th Duke of Roxburghe, succeeded to the Dukedom in 1974. The title was granted to the 5th Earl of Roxburghe in 1707 for his efforts as Secretary of State for Scotland in bringing about the Act of Union between England and Scotland. By his first marriage to Lady Jane Grosvenor he has three children and by his second marriage to Virginia Mary Wynn-Williams they have two children.
The present Duke is responsible for many of the business activities on the Roxburghe Estates and has overseen the development of many of the newer enterprises including the opening of Floors Castle to the public in 1977 and the establishment of the Roxburghe Hotel in 1982 and the Roxburghe Golf Course in 1995. More recently he and the Duchess of Roxburghe have implemented a number of changes at Floors Castle with the expansion of the Terrace Café and Plant Centre at the walled garden, the creation of the Millennium Garden and other improvements at the gardens.
