Ardgowan House & Bagpipe Workshop

Accompany Sir Ludo Shaw Stewart around his extraordinary country estate Ardgowan House and enjoy a stirring bagpipe performance and high tea. Once a solitary watch tower, the estate has evolved into an 18th-century private residence so extraordinary that it has been called "Scotland's Downton Abbey." Ludo, as he prefers to be called, will take you around his estate, showing you his favorite rooms and regaling you with stories of the property's unparalleled history. He will then host a high tea for you in one of the estate's 76 rooms, each one handsomely decorated with period furnishings. During tea, Ludo will describe the importance of bagpipes to the Scottish culture, although the musical instrument originated elsewhere. You will also be treated to an exclusive bagpipe workshop and performance. As the haunting melodies fill the room, you will feel as if you were transported into the distant past, a time when Ardgowan House first lorded over the countryside.
