We pre-booked our tour of Dumfries House and we were shown around in what felt like a very select party of 12 people only,presumably the limit for these tours. It quickly became apparent that the refurbishment is still a work in progress, but the majority has been done, and at apparently no expense spared! Meticulous care has been applied in bringing the house back to its original standard as designed by Adam, and the Chippendale furniture collection is probably unsurpassed anywhere.
The house itself deserves 5 stars but I have docked one star because the rest of the estate is not yet complete (e.g. The walled garden). When all is complete, the whole estate will be a magnificent attraction well worth a 5 star rating!
