House of Dun is just 3 miles from Montrose and its picturesque unspoilt beaches and around 45 minutes’ drive from Aberdeen. Set amongst the splendid Victorian gardens and woodlands, this elegant home has a truly spectacular setting. The house sits in its own formal gardens with parkland and woodland beyond. You can explore and enjoy the Victorian walled garden and wooded den, before venturing further afield to the Montrose Basin Local Nature Reserve. We have moved away from the traditional tour where we would be describing in detail the family, house and collection, our tour now centres on the key players in the history of the house, and the part they played. There will be many opportunities during the tour to discover for yourself the architecture and hidden gems within the house. The first tour starts at 10.45 and thereafter every 45 minutes, the last tour is 3.15pm During April, May, June and September the last Sunday of each month we open the house to freeflow, where you can visit the house and at your leisure take time to enjoy the marvelous collection of ceramics, needlework, plasterwork, artwork and of course grand architecture In July and August every Sunday is freeflow. What to See and Do You’ll hear about the trials and tribulations faced by William Adam in designing and building the house, discover the ornate plasterwork – originally the work of Joseph Enzer, who had made a name for himself with decorative plasterwork in a number of grand Scottish houses – and unearth eccentric period equipment such as the ‘boot bath’ from the 1800s. However, a visit to the House of Dun is about more than just the house. To the east of the house is a rectangular walled garden and there are more gardens to the south, separated from the surrounding countryside by a ha-ha, a vertical drop intended to allow for open views while keeping the sheep out. less
