A ROYAL RESCUE: Dumfries House saved and revealed

Monday 7 October 2019

Dumfries House in Ayrshire was acquired for the nation following a last minute rescue in 2007, largely through the involvement of HRH the Prince of Wales.

Never before opened to the public, Dumfries House is a forgotten Georgian gem, designed by Adam and furnished by Chippendale and others. Once a home of the  Marquesses of Bute, Matthew Williams has known and admired Dumfries House for twenty years. The story of its controversial rescue is both fascinating and entertaining.
