Does anyone know if it is possible to book a 1 day coach trip to Dumfries House from the Dumfries area?
Probably best to contact Dumfries House as they should be aware of such arrangements.
National Trust for Scotland were putting together packages for bus tour operators which was to include Dumfries House and their properties but whether any have taken up the offer I don't know. (Strathmore Hotels are running a tour to Dumfries House with pick ups in Glasgow or Edinburgh on 16 August 2014).
The public bus from Dumfries is not very practical involving a change at Sanquhar and taking around 3 1/2 hours each way!
Many thanks. Did try to contact DH but no reply. Will try again. Ideally need to travel from Carlisle but will compromise.
My company, Inspiration Garden Tours, will be running a 2-day trip to Dumfries House in 2015. We will be travelling from the North East and stopping off for coffee at Houghton Hall Garden Centre near Carlisle. The trip will be some time between June-September. If you are interested in this trip please visit our website: www.inspirationgardentours.co.uk for contact details. We are also running a luxury 2-day trip staying at Dumfries House Lodge on July 8-9 2015 which is full but if you wish to put your name on the reserve list please contact me. It's a long way ahead so cancellations are expected.
Dumfries House is not near Dimfries. Just saying....
Yeah I know. I have already ran two trips there over the last couple of years. It's near Cumnock on the road to Ayr.
