The Entrance Hall The main Entrance Hall sitting at the top of the front steps is the central point of the entire House, the whole idea of the original design being to impress the visitor.


We are immediately presented with the Earl of Dumfries’s credentials; the repeated presentation of his family emblem, a baby dragon or wyvern, and the Noble Order of the Thistle. All of the important rooms on the principal floor are entered from the Entrance Hall.
