Venue Review of Drumlanrig Castle
A picture-book Scottish castle, Drumlanrig rises majestically from the Queensbury Estate, just north of Dumfries. The building dates back to the 17th century and houses part of the Bucceleuch Art
Collection, which includes Rembrandt’s The Old Woman Reading, as well as other artefacts. The pieces sit within grand reception spaces, among sweeping staircases and ornate period features. Drinks
receptions are held in the 100-capacity Great Hall, banquets in the 80-seater Dining Room and meetings in the Old Stable Room, a converted stable yard with AV facilities. For large-scale events, a
marquee can be erected in the gardens, which are surrounded by 90,000 acres of Nithsdale countryside. As you would expect, teambuilding is a strong suit, and a wide range of country pursuits are
available on site: salmon and trout fishing and pheasant, partridge and grouse shooting can all be enjoyed.
