The House of Dun

The House of Dun is a Palladian house overlooking the
Montrose basin, and built in 1730 by Donald Erskine,
Lord Dun, to a William Adam design.

The Trust re-opened the building in 1989 after a £1
million restoration programme. An archway remains
of the old 15th century castle of Dun. Augusta Clarence, the illegitimate daughter of William IV and the actress Mrs Jordan, renovated the house with her husband, John Erskine Kennedy-Erskine.

It later became a hotel. The Trust has refurbished the house in early-Georgian and late-Regency decor. The courtyard buildings house a visitor centre and a tea-room called Lady Augusta’s Kitchen.
