Dumfries House coach trip

Wednesday 19 June 2024

Dumfries House, Cumnock, Ayrshire, KA18 2NJ

Updated: 27 March 2024

We’re arranging a coach trip to Dumfries Houseone of Britain's most beautiful stately homes.

Date and pick ups

We leave Kippen at 9.00am on Wednesday 19 June and will be picking up in Buchlyvie, Balfron, Killearn and Blanefield, arriving at Dumfries House, 50 miles south, by 11.00am.

Cost

As costs have risen significantly since last year, we are gauging interest in two options, both of which incorporate a group discount from Historic Scotland:

  • Option 1 includes an evening meal, at extra cost.

  • Option 2 no evening meal, so is an overall lower cost.

See the options in detail.

Set in 2,000 acres of land, this stunning estate and house with its unrivalled collection of original furniture has something for everyone.

 

The beautifully restored 18th-century house is one of the most significant examples of the Scottish Enlightenment. Designed by the renowned Robert Adam and saved when it was brought to the attention of HRH Prince Charles in 2007, it's been lovingly restored to its former glory and includes a substantial collection of furniture designer Thomas Chippendale's work.

 

Visitors can enjoy guided tours of the impressive interior of the house or explore the grounds which include riverside walks, a doo'cot and lots of wildlife.
