Drumlanrig Castle: Download the Season Brochure  to find out about kids activities at DrumlanrigIf you like delving deep into history, soaking up the finest culture, exploring beautiful countryside – or adrenaline-fuelled mountain biking – you’ll love a day at Drumlanrig Castle. From activities for kids to salmon fishing, you’ll find a raft of activity awaiting you. The Castle has 120 rooms, 17 turrets and four towers and from your very first glance you’ll know you’re entering a special place.

You will discover Rembrandt’s Old Lady Reading* and family portraits by artists such as Thomas Gainsborough, landscapes by Paul Sandby and the Dutch masters, and cartoons by Rowlandson  amid the finest furnishing and antiques.

The 90,000 acre Estate boasts miles of beautiful walks and acres of gardens. Launch yourself down one of our championship mountain biking trails, or hook yourself a salmon, fishing on the river. Activities for kids include everything from the adventure playground to ranger-led wildlife walks and a host of events.

The Castle is the stunning Dumfriesshire seat of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensberry, and they hope you find it as inspiring as they do.

* Please note, Rembrandt’s Old Lady Reading is currently out on loan. You will find her at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, until 17th May 2015.   

Oh dear, we got a bit carried away with our advert in the D&G Standard.  Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate won’t be open until 1st April.  We hope you aren’t too disappointed.
