Christmas events at three great Estates this winter

Darker nights and dropping temperatures may leave you feeling blue this winter, but the South of Scotland offers a multitude of seasonal activities and attractions to get you out and about and into the festive spirit.

You likely already know Drumlanrig Castle, but did you know our sister-estates, Bowhill House & Grounds and Dalkeith Country Park also offer a great range of winter fun in the South of Scotland.
