School Visits

The Buccleuch family and the Queensberry Estate are committed to working with educational bodies under the Curriculum for Excellence and Outdoor Learning programmes. Taking the classroom outdoors is an excellent way to promote and encourage a deeper understanding of the impact of environmental management on the local countryside.

School visits at Drumlanrig are suitable for nursery, primary and secondary School children and can be adapted to suit specific curriculum requirements and age groups.

Visits can be either ranger-led or self-guided and can include a tour of the Castle, a variety of walks or a chance to experience some of our rural businesses at work.

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all staff at Drumlanrig Castle, my class thoroughly enjoyed themselves today. The tour with Gwen was interesting and freaky (kids words) as she was able to share lots of stories and the adventure playground was a great end to our trip in the afternoon. You all made us feel welcome and nothing seemed a problem, thanks again. I would love to come back another time.”
Ashley Higgins, Class Teacher, Lincluden Primary, Dumfries
