One of my all-time favourite explores to date, the Dunmore Estate is filled with abandoned wonders!
This report will focus solely on the Dunmore House itself. The outbuildings/stable block, and ruined tower and graveyard are worthy of their own reports.

History

The sprawling Dunmore mansion was built in 1822 for the Earl of Dunmore, and was later a girl’s school before being abandoned in 1964. It was then ransacked in the 70’s and fell into ruin. Now standing today as a pillaged and forgotten husk within the extensive grounds of the Dunmore Estate.

Report

Straying a little off the footpaths and into some woodland and open farmland of the Dunmore Estate, leads you to the imposing structure of Dunmore Park House.

The family coat of arms above the main doorway is one of only a few remaining details of its former glory days.

It’s still an impressive structure, and it’s hard not to appreciate the stonemasonry.

The long absent roof has exposed the structure to the elements, and nature has weaved its way into every part of it.

Although the open roof makes for great lighting for most of the place, and a natural skylight for when the weather is being agreeable.

There are also some darker places to explore in the far corners of the grand mansion.

There’s no shortage of aesthetically pleasing views and angles of this place.
And all in all, a really great location with a lot to offer.

Frequently visit this site as its local to me, have many pictures to share as well! Beautiful building, did you manage to take a look in the stables too?
It is indeed a beautiful explore! I would go there multiple times a year if I could :)
Yes, the stables and Elphinstone tower/graveyard are worthy of separate reports. Dunmore is such a wonderful place!
