Visit: Aiket Castle Gardens and Dumfries House
On the way to Dumfries House, fit in a visit to Aiket Castle to view the
gardens, by kind permission of Katrina Clow, who, along with her husband,
undertook a great restoration of the castle. Then travel on to
Dumfries House, one of the most architecturally significant houses in the UK.
Built between 1754 and 1760 by the Adam brothers for the 5th Earl of Dumfries,
with a unique collection of Chippendale furniture, the House has been described
as an 18th century time-capsule since the principal rooms and their contents
have remained virtually unchanged for 250 years.
