We connect people, place and the past to shape the future

In our fast-changing connected world of automation, climate change, ageing and work mobility we need to discover and develop new inspiring inclusive ways to live, work, learn, play and relax. Here at #TheCrichton we want to empower and enable a new cross-generational, business, academic and individual knowledge exchange community that shapes the ‘Future Economy’. We will do this primarily via the enterprising custodianship of The Crichton Estate, creating a world-renowned home and destination for innovation; a place for people to cohabit and share ideas – all inspired by The Crichton’s extraordinary history, places and spaces. Rooted in our rural setting and gigabit connected to the world.

Behind the Estate is The Crichton Trust – an innovative social enterprise leading #TheCrichton through its next exciting phase of development.

In essence, we connect people, place and the past to shape the future.

The Crichton is an 85 acre parkland estate steeped in history and located on the outskirts of Dumfries in the south west of Scotland.

The grounds and landscaped gardens are free and accessible to the public all year round. The Crichton is a vibrant business and academic community with over 75 businesses and 5 academic partners currently located here.

The Crichton Memorial Church sits proudly at the heart of The Crichton, next to the Holiday Inn Hotel and only a 2 minute walk from the rock garden, Easterbrook Bistro, Bar & Spa and Easterbrook Hall, the largest auditorium in the South of Scotland.

The setting, facilities and location make The Crichton a stunning and popular choice for weddings, conferences, concerts, the arts, exhibitions, meetings, social and charity events, business, education and leisure breaks and offers some of the highest quality, flexible and affordable commercial property and meeting spaces in Scotland.
