Drumlanrig Castle

Prince Charles Edward stayed here overnight on 22-23 December 1745 during the retreat from England. The castle belonged to the staunchly Whig third Duke of Queensberry and was not treated with the respect that the Jacobites normally showed to places they stayed in. Troops rode ponies up and down the main staircase. A money box said to have been used by Charles Edward is on display
