Old Photograph Kinmount House Scotland

Old photograph of Kinmount House located three miles West of Annan, near Dumfries, Scotland. The house was designed by Sir Robert Smirke for the Marquess of Queensberry, and completed in 1820. The lands of Kinmount were granted to the Carlyle family in the 13th century, and acquired by William Douglas, 1st Earl of Queensberry, in 1633. The 4th Duke of Queensberry carried out extensive planting on the estate in the late 18th century. On his death in 1810 Kinmount passed to Charles Douglas, 6th Marquess of Queensberry, who commissioned a new house from the English architect Sir Robert Smirke. The Greek Revival house was built between 1813 and 1820, with Smirke's assistant William Burn acting as executant architect. The stonemason was John Park, and stone was brought from Cove quarry near Kirkpatrick-Fleming. In 1896 John Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry, sold Kinmount to Edward Brook, a wealthy English industrialist who had bought the adjacent Hoddom Castle estate in the 1870s. Brook commissioned alterations and extensions to the house from Dumfries architects James Barbour and J. M. Bowie. These included the roof balustrades and urns, and the service court to the north-west. The house was used as a hospital during both the First and Second World Wars.
