Dumfries House, Cumnock, Ayrshire, KA18 2NJ

Updated: 13 June 2024

Places have sold out for our coach trip and a confirmation email has been sent on 13 June to everyone who booked and paid for a place.

 

Here is a reminder of where we are going...

There has been much interest in our coach trip to Dumfries House, one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes. 

 

We are running the trip without the meal at the end of the day, because only a few folk chose this option.

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.

Lunch

Lunch is at your own expense or you can bring your own. The Coach House Café is next to the Visitor Centre and serves a range of delicious hot and cold refreshments. 

How to book

(In case you're wondering, we have secured a group discount from Historic Scotland for our visit, so there is no extra reduction for membership.)

T&C
About the House

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.

Make sure you visit the Visitor Centre & Shop, where you can pick up a map of the Estate and find out more.

The garden tour starts from the house and involves a 20 minute walk down to the walled garden - the bus can transport those unable to walk that far.
