Dumfries House

Dumfries House was built for William Crichton-Dalrymple, the 5th Earl of Dumfries between 1754 and 1759.

The House remains one of the Adam brothers’ and, most importantly, Robert Adam’s earliest architectural commissions. Dumfries House, its entire contents and a two thousand acre estate were dramatically saved from sale in 2007 by a consortium of charitable bodies led by HRH The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay.

Admission to Dumfries House is by guided tour only. There is no charge for admission onto the Estate. Pre-booking tickets for tours is advised, but not necessary.

During the winter months, guests staying at the Dumfries House Lodge may book a private tour of the house. To allow us to organise a personal guide for you please make this request when confirming your booking or at least 72 hours prior to your arrival at the Lodge. Private tours are charged at a cost from £25 per person.

Taking its title from one of the Prince’s official titles in Scotland, the Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust was created to manage the House and Estate. Opened to the public for the first time in June 2008, Dumfries House continues to delight and amaze visitors from all over the world.

Dumfries House’s elegant, Palladian villa design is the work of Robert Adam. Adam’s original architecture and interiors survive in fantastic condition, including ornate plaster ceilings and original fireplaces.

Visitors can check same day availability by calling the booking line (01290) 421742, or simply ‘drop-in’ on tours and pay on arrival. Maximum 20 per tour.
