Drumlanrig Castle, Gardens & Country park
Surrounded by the 120,000 acre Queensberry Estate, Country Park and grand Victorian gardens, Drumlanrig Castle was
completed in 1691 by William Douglas, 1st Duke of Queensberry and is one of the first and most important renaissance buildings in
the grand manner in Scotland. Steeped in history, this unique and historic Scottish Castle filled with treasures. Its Estate and
Gardens is one of the principal visitor attractions in South Scotland offering Castle tours, guided walks and the best sporting
opportunities in South Scotland. The historic Scottish castle, constructed from local pink sandstone and set on a hill (Drum) at the
end of a long (lang) ridge (rig), affords visitors beautiful views across Nithsdale to rolling hills and woodlands. This ancient
Douglas stronghold is brimming with treasures; fine paintings and furniture, carvings, tapestries and silverware dating from a
bygone age of opulence. The tenderly managed woodlands and countryside have provided a perfect habitat for wildlife and the clean
water tumbling from the Lowther Hills has ensured that the River Nith remains one of Scotland's finest salmon and sea trout rivers.
