House of Dun

Angus Coastal Route

Designed by the famous Scottish architect William Adam and begun in 1730, the House of Dun was home to the Erskine family for over 200 years. Tour this beautiful Georgian mansion to take in the impressive period interiors, see objects owned by the family and hear about the trials of building the house.

Afterwards, enjoy a stroll in the manicured gardens or stretch your legs on the woodland walk. If you fancy a bit of wildlife spotting head to the nearby Montrose Basin reserve, which is home to extensive populations of wildfowl and geese. Why not enjoy a walk around the beautiful reserve, topped off with a hot drink in the reserve visitor centre?
