The Dumfries House Clock Collection. Marking the passage of time.
A surprise for many on entering the Hall is the presence of 8 longcase clocks. Although only 2 clocks remained in 2007, the house has been fortunate to amass a fine collection which, while marking the passage of time, returns a heartbeat to Dumfries House.
The hall features Georgian and Victorian longcase clocks from renowned London makers as well as provincial examples, including one from the local town of Cumnock.
Our regular Clocks and Mechanicals Tour takes a closer look at the clocks and timepieces featured throughout the house and includes not only longcase clocks but also bracket and mantel clocks, a rare turntable clock and a magnificent tavern clock. For more information, please call 01290425959
