On Sunday 7th May a group of 12 Cambuslang Rotarians and their partners headed down to Ayrshire to visit the splendid Dumfries House near Cumnock.
Dumfries House is recognised as one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes and it was saved for the nation in 2007 by a trust led by the Prince of Wales. Since then it has undergone a spectactular renovation and refurbishment programme of both the house and grounds. Our group were given a guided tour of the house which gave us a chance to admire amongst other things the largest collection of Chippendale furniture in the world, beautiful fabrics and 18th century carpets and some stunning paintings including a lovely Monet. Our excellent guide Gail was full of interesting stories which really helped to bring the house to life.
Our tour concluded with a very pleasant afternoon tea in the Rothsay suite which gave us a chance to relax and enjoy fellowship before a short stroll through the gardens in the late afternoon sunshine.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend a trip to Dumfries House to other clubs.
