House of Dun, Garden & Estate

About this place

William Adam’s Georgian house places baroque extravagance in a spectacular natural setting.

  • Explore this elegant Georgian country house as our costumed guides lead you through its history.
  • Admire the spectacular plasterwork in the saloon – don’t miss the hidden Jacobite symbolism.
  • Discover a new, interactive visitor experience in our courtyard, now home to the Angus Folk Collection.
  • Wander through the glorious formal gardens, and look out for red squirrels as you enjoy the woodland walks.

With stunning vistas overlooking Montrose Basin and set amid glorious gardens and woodland, House of Dun is every inch the perfect 18th-century laird’s home – and a fantastic day out for all the family. Built in 1743 to replace the medieval tower house that had been home to the Erskine family since 1375, the house is filled with treasures that tell the stories of the people who lived here.
