Dabton House, Drumlanrig Estate

by Roxtons

We’re delighted to report that Dabton House on the Drumlanrig estate in southwest Scotland is now up and running and is offering five star accommodation on-site for shoot parties. It’s been very well received so far by teams who’ve stayed there and only enhances the whole experience of shooting on the estate.

Dabton was designed in 1820 by the popular architect William Atkinson, following a commission by Walter Montagu Douglas Scott, the 5th Duke of Buccleuch. The house historically served as the home of the Queensberry Estate’s factor until, in the 1980s, it was refurbished by the 10th Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch as a wonderful family home for themselves and their four children, including Walter Dalkeith. In this new chapter, the Earl and Countess of Dalkeith, Walter and Elizabeth, have been instrumental in leading the recent renovations of Dabton House, which they completed in August 2023. The family continues to use the house today and it retains the ambience of a family home.

Meticulously restored to its former glory, the house incorporates modern comforts and amenities to meet the discerning needs of today’s guests. The blending of old-world charm and contemporary sophistication provides an unmatched setting for an array of occasions. Its amenities include a sauna, a well appointed treatment room, heated kennels, and catering kitchen.
