EXPLORE DUNGLASS ESTATE

SITUATED IN THE HEART OF EAST LOTHIAN

Lush grounds sweeping down to the cliffs, historic buildings, a rich and explosive history, a magical secret garden… You’ll find all this and more at East Lothian’s Dunglass Estate

Despite feeling delightfully secluded, Dunglass is within easy reach of Edinburgh and several main road and rail links including Berwick-upon-Tweed just over the English border. Plus, if required, there is plenty of space within the grounds to land a helicopter.

THE HERITAGE

MEET THE
USHERS

A family run estate in it’s fourth generation…

Simon and Joyce have lived at Dunglass together with their young children Thomas and Lucy since Simon’s return in 2006. It is the perfect partnership and with a combined passion for living and working in the countryside having been inspired by travel, music and culture, this has given them the inspiration to successfully carry Dunglass forward as a thriving and diverse enterprise to continue the family’s legacy of 100 years.

STUNNING SCENIC SERENITY

THE GROUNDS

Robert Burns paid tribute to Dunglass in 1787 stating “It is the most romantic sweet place I ever saw”. From the rugged coastline and ancient woodlands to the designed landscape that surrounds our historic architecture and 15th century Dunglass Collegiate Church, it is certainly a beautiful setting and peaceful place to enjoy a wide variety of activities and memorable events. Every season has a unique appeal however in springtime there is an abundance of natural colour with daffodils, native bluebells, and rhododendrons signalling the start of summer.

PROUD CONSERVATION

AGRICULTURE
& ENTERPRISE

The landscape of Dunglass offers a mix of quality Arable and Livestock farming opportunities to promote environmentally friendly farming practices utilising organic matter, reduced cultivations and cover crops for the benefit of the soil, fertility, productivity and carbon capture. With the latest in technology our farming contractors continue to sell quality and sustainable produce to big brand customers located within close proximity to the Estate such as distillers, flour mills, oat processors, ethanol plants and seaports. We understand the importance of sustainable farming practices with the benefit of enhanced biodiversity and habitat management. We appreciate also the importance of preserving our native and rare breed animals whilst continuing to support our local economy with quality and locally sourced sustainable produce.
