  • House of Dun & Montrose Basin Nature Reserve

    Designed with Georgian pride and baroque extravagance, House of Dun is every bit the perfect 18th century laird's home. The Trust owns much of the western half of the Montrose Basin Local Nature Reserve and it is internationally important for its migratory wading birds and wildfowl.

    Step into the wildlife-rich outdoors where formal gardens are surrounded by acres of Montrose woodland.
