Visiting Arniston House
Arniston House is pleased to welcome visitors for guided tours which are regularly taken by family members. The family take great pleasure in sharing the anecdotes of their ancestral home and the Dundas legacy. Tours are available from May to Mid-September and typically take just over an hour. On your tour you will hear the story of Arniston and the history of the Dundas family. You will also have the opportunity to see not only the spectacular architecture, period furniture, china collections and stucco work, but also the wonderful paintings by artists such as Sir Henry Raeburn and Alexander Nasmyth.
