Great Estates of Scotland
Documentary series. Dumfries House is one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes and best-kept heritage secrets with its sumptuous interiors and magnificent furnishings. Built between 1754 and 1759 by the 5th Earl of Dumfries, and with a unique collection of Chippendale furniture, the house has been described as an 18th-century time capsule, as the principal rooms and their contents have remained unchanged for over 250 years. In June 2007, the Prince of Wales headed a consortium of charities and heritage bodies to purchase this unique house, its contents and adjoining land. This is the story of his efforts to keep this historical jewel intact and accessible to the public. The prince's passion is also giving a future to several disenfranchised young people from the area.
