An easy walk across Rocky seashore, woodland tracks and country road. The classically-styled Arbigland House was built in 1755 by improving laird and gentleman architect William Craik (1703â€“98) and a small dower house called The House on the Shore was built in 1936 by Kathleen Blackett-Swiny. Founder of the United States Navy John Paul Jones, whose father was a gardener at Arbigland, was born in a cottage in the grounds on 6 July 1747. The cottage is now the John Paul Jones Cottage Museum, and is open from April to September. The gardens at Arbigland are open to the public at selected times during the summer months.
