After the success of opening up Dumfries House, Cumnock, Ayrshire to the public does anyone know of any plans to promote other such projects such as Glaisnock House, Boswell House, Auchinleck House or their grounds? There seems to be numerous stately homes in south west Scotland and they should perhaps consider working together when advertising.
Dumfries House is featured on BBC1's Antique Roadshow this Sunday (21st of December) at 6:45.
Opening times, tours and prices have been set for 2009 and the booking line has re-opened. Tours are only available by ‘pre-booking’ through the booking line (01290 551111). Visitors arriving without a valid entry ticket will not be admitted.
The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, President of The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust, opened Dumfries House to the public on Friday 6th June and managed to attract about 8,500 visitors before closing for the winter in October.
