House Of Dun

Our late Autumn sees us at the House of Dun near Montrose. The house is every bit the perfect 18th-century laird’s home. It took 13 years to complete and the precision shows in masterful plasterwork throughout highlighting both classical tableaux and family emblems. Beautiful hand-stitched woolwork and embroideries are by Lady Augusta FitzClarence, daughter of William IV and actress Dorothy Jordan. Downstairs in the kitchen see how the house was at the forefront of technology, with a labour-saving clockwork spit to make work easier for the cook and her staff and to compete with the wonderful setting we will be showcasing beautiful artwork, gorgeous textiles, aromatic candles, quirky ceramics, stunning glass work, delicate jewellery, fine home furnishings, tasty preserves,a range of gins, spices and more.
