Dougaldston Estate has been long abandoned and there isn't anyone on site to give a tour. If you are going with a tour guide they will share the history and walk you around the old buildings. I was fortunate to have the daughter of a...More

We were on a tour to take us there. It took more than an hour negotiating 1,000's curves in a small non very comfortable bus. The estate is run down; the guide told us it was mis-managed after the old generation died and current owners...More
