Fire crews were sent to the historic home of Sir Walter Scott in the Borders after vacuum cleaner dust triggered an alarm system.
Firefighters from Galashiels were despatched to Abbotsford House near Melrose just after 09:00.
However, it turned out to be an automated call-out caused by the dust.
The famous building was officially opened earlier this month by the Queen following a multi-million pound refurbishment.
