I took the opportunity to have a quick visit to some of the gardens in the estate of Dumfries House. The house is of Palladian architecture, built in Ayrshire, Scotland. The large estate and house still contains much of its original 18th-century furniture, including specially commissioned Thomas Chippendale pieces. The house and gardens are listed as significant aspects of Scottish Heritage. I would encourage you to find out more at their website Dumfries House.
Unfortunately my visit coincided with rather unpleasant weather which made photography difficult, but it did whet my appetite for going back on a more pleasant day. I have posted some photographs below and one on instagram that I had a little fun with before posting.
