In 2007, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, put together a rescue package in conjunction with The Scottish Government, Historic Scotland and The Prince's charities to save Dumfries House and its contents from being put to auction.

After consultation, a vision emerged to create a 'new neighbourhood' designed and built to last the test of time.

Knockroon is not just another housing development; It is an entire neighbourhood; homes, shops and work places.

Situated on the edge of Dumfries House Estate, the concept of building a new community is well underway.

Knockroon has been designed to reflect the rich architectural tradition of Ayrshire. Using only traditional design the entire development will have an endless beauty.
