Dumfries House

Built in the 1750s by the Adam brothers, Dumfries House has preserved unchanged the living conditions of the landed aristocracy of the time. The restored house contains a large collection of furniture by Chippendale that is original to the property, as well as pieces by other great designers of the period. Run by a charity headed by Prince Charles, the surrounding 2,000-acre estate is projected as a site for a new eco-village and centers practicing historic crafts. Entry is by guided tour only; booking is essential. The house is about 10 miles east of Ayr.
