Drumlanrig Castle Tour

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

This magnificent castle is built of local pink sandstone. It was constructed by the 1st Duke of Queensberry during the period 1679-91 and was superimposed upon the 14th/15th century Douglas stronghold. The architects are believed to have been Robert Mylne or his son-in-law James Smith.

This castle (palace?) houses a celebrated art collection and is set in the huge Queensberry Estate with a focus on wildlife conservation and landscape enhancement.

Visit this castle with Catswhiskerstours in context of a tour of Dumfriesshire and the Borders.
