School Visit Review
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all staff at Drumlanrig Castle, my class thoroughly enjoyed themselves today. The tour with Gwen was interesting and freaky (kids words) as she was able to share lots of stories and the adventure playground was a great end to our trip in the afternoon. You all made us feel welcome and nothing seemed a problem, thanks again. I would love to come back another time.”Ashley Higgins, Class Teacher, Lincluden Primary, Dumfries
