Preserving our heritage

One of the main attractions of Drumlanrig Castle is its unspoilt natural beauty. And it takes a lot of careful work and considerable planning to ensure that future generations can enjoy the Estate in exactly the same way that past generations did. Which is why the woodlands that surround Drumlanrig are managed in a sustainable way with continual regeneration, helping to offset Drumlanrig’s carbon footprint.

In 2010, we were thrilled to be awarded a Green Tourism Silver Award in recognition of the contribution we have made in creating a greener environment.  This represents the culmination of our huge commitment to ‘green’ issues both at the Castle itself and on the wider Estate.

And you can do your bit too. Please help us to be more environmentally friendly by following these simple guidelines:

Respect Nature: Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by not dropping litter, guarding against fire and using footpaths and cycle-ways responsibly.

Reduce, Reuse & Recycle: Please use the recycling facilities that we provide.  You can find bins to separate your rubbish in the car park and adventure playground.

Shop Local: Why not buy something from our gift shop, which is full of ideal gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas including a selection of local crafts and recycled produce.

Share Transport: If you are meeting your friends or family at Drumlanrig, try to share rather than each bringing a car.
