A Classic Combination in Scotland

By Linda Tancs

Scotland’s Dumfries House is an all-around classic, inside and out.  Set amidst 2,000 rustic acres in Ayrshire, the 18th century country house is a neoclassical gem designed by Robert Adam, one of the most important British architects of his day.  Inside, the house enjoys the distinction of holding one of the largest collections of Chippendale furniture in the world, a classic by any standard.  A royal restoration begun in 2007 saved the property from an uncertain future.
