sir ludo's GUIDED HOUSE TOURS
Unlike most other country houses that have changed hands during the course of their lives, Ardgowan has remained in the possession of one family: the Shaw Stewarts, since 1406.
Throwing open our doors to the public for the first time in over 600 years, we cordially invite you to step back in time with us to explore a stately home steeped in history and look through a window into a now lost world...
