Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate
Located near Thornhill in Dumfries and Galloway and signposted from the M74, Drumlanrig Castle is a great day out for all the family. The Castle, affectionately named the 'Pink Palace' with its distinctive local sandstone, is regarded as one of the finest examples of 17th Century Renaissance architecture in Scotland.
Enjoy Castle Tours with friendly guides bringing the history, world-class art collection and inspiring interiors to life. Discover the fascinating links with the 'Braveheart' story, the Douglas family links, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Outlander and Rembrandt.
Explore acres of stunning Castle Gardens with Victorian parterres, beautiful borders, intricate heather houses, ancient trees, and its very own adventure playground for younger visitors.
And enjoy country pursuits within the picturesque Estate grounds from walking, cycling, fishing, to simulated game shoots.
The Castle and Gardens are open seasonally (see website) but welcome groups all year by appointment. Guests can even enjoy a short break on the magnificent Estate in the newly renovated self-catering cottages and apartments.
