Brief description of site
Dalhousie Castle is situated on a meander of the South River Esk. Very little remains of the 19th-century picturesque landscape although some woodland walks can just be traced along the river. A few late-18th-century plantings that were once part of an avenue survive in Anna Park. Castle Park is farmed for arable crops. Dalhousie Castle has been run as a hotel since 1972.
Brief history of site
Dalhousie Castle was associated with the Ramseys of Dalhousie from the 12th to the 20th century. A designed landscape was in place before 1750 and was subsequently altered in the mid-19th century. The estate was known for the picturesque layout and the extensive collection of trees.
