The origins of Dunglass Estate can be traced back to the fourteenth century when a castle – the stronghold of the Earl’s of Home (ancestors of the famed philosopher David Hume) – stood here. It was destroyed in 1548, but was rebuilt, only to be lost to time (and maybe some marauding enemies).
Many historic buildings remain on the Estate, most notably Dunglass Church, which dates back to the 1400s. A stunning “secret” walled garden – built around the time of the old mansion – still survives and has been lovingly restored.
Today Dunglass is a thriving agricultural estate, as well as a popular wedding venue, providing numerous families with the perfect backdrop to create some history of their own.
