Earlier this year, The Prince of Wales - known as The Duke of Rothesay in Scotland – visited Dumfries House to see the heritage-led regeneration projects that are taking place there for the benefit of the local community.

Speaking at the time, The Duke shared his thoughts about the regeneration of Dumfries House: "Well first of all of course there was the house that I’d heard about. There was a danger of losing it altogether, and the fact that there wasn’t a solution, meant that I had to try and find one. And of course, what really clinched it for me was the fact that here was an opportunity to help regenerate, and give new hope and inspiration to the area."

During the visit, The Duke opened the newly refurbished Prince’s Drawing School Dimplex Studios.

"When I first came and looked round Dumfries House this particular building was completely hidden in the middle of a lot of rather scruffy trees and undergrowth. So Ladies and Gentlemen, it is another stage on the road of regeneration here at DH and in connecting with the local community. So now I take great pleasure in declaring the new laundry building open!"
