 - Drumlanrig: The Castle, its people and its Paintings
Drumlanrig: The Castle, its people and its

With its picturesque domes, walls of pale pink sandstone and splendid Dumfriesshire setting, Drumlanrig is one of Scotland’s most romantic castles, its story entwined with that of the country itself. Today’s castle was superimposed on a medieval Douglas stronghold by the 1st Duke of Queensberry and took a decade to build. Finished in 1689, its North Front is a stunning stage set of dressed stone, classical pilasters and carvings of swags, scrolls and spooky faces. The 2nd Duke, known as ‘The Union Duke’ for his role in the 1707 Act of Union, added the great oak staircase, while his son created the vast gardens. The 4th Duke, a rakish cousin known as ‘Old Q’, left it to future Dukes of Buccleuch and Queensberry to rescue the castle and fill it with treasures, including Rembrandt’s luminous Old Woman Reading.Table of ContentsTHE PEOPLE The Dukes of QueensberryRenaissance portraitsGentlemen in the Serving RoomPortraits of the DuchessesThe independent DuchessThe Royals in the storyThe Fencible and Militia regimentsTHE PRINCIPAL ROOMSThe Drawing Room The Ante-Room and its RembrandtBonnie Prince Charlie’s BedroomThe Great Oak StaircaseThe Dining Room The Serving Room The Northeast Tower The Morning Room The Parlour The Boudoir The White Bedroom Room Thirty-Nine The Inne...

 - Drumlanrig Castle and the Douglases: with the early history and ancient remains of Durisdeer, Closeburn, and Morton (1876)
Drumlanrig Castle and the Douglases: with the early history and ancient remains of Durisdeer, Closeburn, and Morton

Drumlanrig Castle, the clan seat of the Douglases of Queensberry, is a very modern edifice, in terms of this old and influential border family, as they trace their roots far into the archaeological record of the Scottish nation. Rather than tackle the end of the family spectrum represented by the infamous Archibald the Grim, this book chooses to consider instead the intimate and, at times, almost symbiotic relationship between clan and landscape. An examination of both the historical and archaeological heritage of the region, while also exploring those many thriving communities which existed at the time of writing (1876), this book gives an attention to local detail, coupled with the genealogy of the Douglases, which makes it an invaluable resource. More than one hundred years after the original publication, many of these small townships, and the relationships they fostered, have ceased to exist and have been almost entirely forgotten. Craufurd Tait Ramage, was, during his lifetime, a writer of some repute. Initially tutor to the family of the first Baron Monteagle, he was later appointed to the Rectorship of Wallace Hall Academy in Dumfries.

Excerpt from The Manuscripts of His Grace the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry K. G., K. T, Vol. 8: Preserved at Drumlanrig CastleThe important documents here reported on establish the fact that. Instead of predeceasing her husband, William, first Earl of Douglas, she survived him and married as her second husband Sir John Swinton of Swinton, while her son having survived his father inherited the two titles of Douglas and Mar. These facts were clearly established when the Drumlanrig charters in question were produced in the House of Lords.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
