Great visit. House is beautiful. Tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Delicious coffee and lunch in the cafe. Well worth doing the Den of Dun walk.

Been to Montrose quite a new times but never to the House of Dun. Not really my thing but my partner. However I really enjoyed the tour. The guide was excellent, knowledgeable, but also kept the tour entertaining

Can only be seen by guided tour at regular intervals. Our guide, Louise was informative, helpful and very cheerful. Added to the experience. This is a fine example of Adam architecture in a Scottish National Trust property but with original family furniture, paintings and memorabilia....More
