Doors Open Days - House of Dun
Designed with Georgian pride and baroque extravagance by renowned architect William Adam, House of Dun is every bit the perfect 18th-century laird’s home. It took 13 years to complete and the precision shows in the fine details. Joseph Enzer’s plasterwork in the saloon is masterful – classical tableaux and family emblems rise thickly from the walls and ceilings with filigree flourishes. Throughout the house, hand-stitched woolwork and embroideries by Lady Augusta FitzClarence, daughter of William IV and actress Dorothy Jordan are equally impressive. Finally, step into the wildlife-rich outdoors, where beautiful formal gardens are surrounded by acres of Montrose woodland.
Open Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 September. Tours at 10.15am, 11.30am, 12.15pm, 1.00pm, 1.45pm, 2.30pm & 3.15pm.
This event is part of Doors Open Days.
