Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Dumfries and Galloway / Thornhill / Drumlanrig Castle
Live like royalty with a visit to Drumlanrig Castle, a 17th-century Renaissance castle and home of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensberry. Built from distinctive pink sandstone (hence its nickname, the Pink Palace), the structure supports 120 rooms, 17 turrets, and four towers. Situated in the expansive rolling green countryside, the grounds feature impeccably manicured landscaping and gardens. Aside from its royal inhabitants, the castle is also home to an impressive collection of paintings, tapestries, and part of the Buccleuch art collection--featuring works by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt.

No matter how many times I return to Drumlanrig I can never quite get over how beautiful the castle and its gardens are. This afternoon my dog and I had a wonderful 2-hour walk around the grounds...

Visited the Castle and Gardens on a Thursday. The Castle wasn't open for tours on that day so check before you visit if you are wanting to see inside. The bike trails are still not open due to previous storm damage and the small artisan shops didn't appear to be open although they looked like the individual units were being redecorated inside and out. Entry into the gardens and children's adventure playground is fairly cheap and the playground looks like fun. Oh to be young again. The cafe is adequate but I'd bring your own sandwiches if visiting over lunchtime. The Castle and gardens/grounds are simply stunning. You can appreciate the work that must go into keeping them up to that standard. I took my dogs with me and they enjoyed it too. Would definitely recommend to others.
Absolutely stunning, you require a day visit for the whole place. Palace Castle looks superb outside and a lot of historic antiques inside. Excellent Gardens and kids playground. Cafe and shops are cool.
