Duke of Rothesay to Open Dumfries House Health and Wellbeing Centre


The Duke of Rothesay will Formally Open the Dumfries House Health and Wellbeing Centre


HRH Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay, will formally open The Dumfries House Health and Wellbeing Centre, the new home of The Prince’s Foundation’s successful Integrated Health and Wellbeing programme at Dumfries House, Cumnock, Ayrshire.

The Prince’s Foundation Integrated Health and Wellbeing programme

The programme, established in May 2016 and run in partnership with local GPs, champions natural remedies, traditional techniques and healthy-eating, with great emphasis placed on healing the mind and body as a whole. The new centre will offer a wide range of complementary therapies – including reflexology, acupuncture and hypnotherapy – to help participants attain outcomes such as increased fertility, menopausal health, and chronic pain management, and to combat diabetes and obesity.

Dumfries House

In July 2007 a consortium led by The Prince of Wales purchased Dumfries House and, in so doing, saved it for the Nation. Its contents and adjoining land, including a priceless collection of furniture by Thomas Chippendale, were due to be separated and sold at auction. The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust was formed to develop the house and estate as a visitor attraction, as well as using it to invigorate the local community.  Now fully restored, Dumfries House is at the heart of local regeneration and is open to the public for the first time in 250 years. The estate offers training opportunities through a number of The Prince’s Charities, and includes a number of facilities such as a hospitality centre, engineering centre, Sports Hall and the fully restored Queen Elizabeth Walled Garden.
