Likely you have heard tell that a person’s home is their castle, but in the South of Scotland, many of our great homes are quite literally castles. We have defended our lands for centuries from the tops of towers and inside keeps and forts. We have entertained royalty in our stately homes and gardens and witnessed some of the greatest events in Scottish history across our ancient thresholds.

Some of these magnificient buildings have been immortalised on film and television. Do you recognised the famous staircase from the Buccaneers at Drumlanrig Castle, a glorious palace made of pink stone? Or perhaps you were a fan of the sumptious interiors of Floors Castle in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

Come with us and explore the extraordinary dwellings of the South of Scotland.
