Lovely house and gardens nice walks even for small children but the prices in the cafe are very expensive especially if you have breakfast type filled rolls.👍up for the house and walks👎For the cafe although the staff were very nice.
My partner and I visited the House of Dun for the first time this afternoon. November isn’t the best month to visit the garden and grounds, so we will save those for another visit. The cafe, Erskine’s, did an excellent soup-and-sandwich. Our guide, Karen, was...More

House Of Dun (2 Replies)
Having lived in the area for about the first 20 years of my life I had never got round to visiting this National Trust Of Scotland stately home but on a visit to my parents this week I took time out to pay it a visit and was so glad I did. It is a wonderful place and an absolute credit to Scottish tourism. The house itself is beautiful, as are the grounds but if you visit take in the old linen weaving looms that are still working and providing some great designs. There are a couple of shops...More
