Dalswinton House Virtual Visit in April
This video of Dalswinton House, located miles from Dumfries, shares the garden in April 2020. If you would like to donate towards our fundraising this year, please use the button below. And please mention Dalswinton House in the optional note if you’d like to especially support their charity choice, Kirkmahoe Parish Church of Scotland.
Late 18th-century house sits on top of a hill surrounded by herbaceous beds and well-established shrubs, including rhododendrons and azaleas, overlooking the loch. Attractive walks through woods and around the loch. It was here that the first steamboat in Britain made its maiden voyage in 1788 and there is a life-size model beside the water to commemorate this. Over the past years, there has been much clearing and development work around the loch, which has opened up the views considerably.
