Visit to Dumfries House Gardens followed by a visit to Auchinleck House.

Over the past two years Dumfries House’s Walled Gardens have been transformed with newly restored terraces and greenhouses. There are 5 acres to explore so something for every taste.

Auchinleck House has had a long and varied history. The site has been dwelt on since the 13th century but the current house was built c.1760 by the 8th Laird of Auchinleck. It later passed on to his colourful son the diarist and biographer James Boswell.
