Dunmore House

Published: 19 Jan 2022

Dunmore House in Scotland was built between 1820 and 1825 and was a grand mansion. It was an ancestral home for generations before briefly becoming a girls school. The building was abandoned in the 1970s and has since become a ruin. It is now nothing more than a shell but It is still an interesting location to explore and the wine cellars are fascinating to see.

Even as a shell, Dunmore House is still an incredible location to visit and have a look around. The entire structure is roofless and the floors have long since been lost. From ground level, you can explore much of the building looking up to where floors, doors, windows and fireplaces now reside, having once been on the different levels within the building.

It is still possible to enter the wine cellars and see all the shelves that still retain their painted numbers. This would probably have been used to archive the wine when the property was still a residence.

During the making of this video, we also got some impressive drone footage. Drone shots really show the scale and magnitude of the structure. It also highlights just how much it has decayed over the years.
