History & Heritage

Shambellie House was built in 1856 for William Stewart and remained in the Stewart family until 1977 when Charles Stewart gave it to the Scottish nation.  The twist and turns of its history are fascinating, from the disputes between the family and the architect, the eccentric owners over the centuries and its colourful visitors.  Located in the historic village of New Abbey which includes the evocative 13th century Sweetheart Abbey and 18th century Corn Mill, and set within the context of Dumfries and Galloway, there is a mine of history and heritage to discover.
