About Caerlaverock Estate

The Estate is privately owned and has remained within the same family for over 800 years. Lady Clare Kerr, heir to the title Lady Herries of Terregles, took over the running of the Estate in 2017 and has since brought ‘The Boathouse Glencaple’ to life, an award-winning restaurant and shop on the quayside in the village of Glencaple. The Estate devolved from the 16th Duke of Norfolk, Lady Clare’s grandfather, via his mother Gwendolen Constable Maxwell, the 12th Lady Herries of Terregles. The Herries title, as ‘male preference’, passes to the eldest daughter in the absence of a son. Thus far there have been five Lady Herries of Terregles, the first (Agnes) in the 16th century. Over many generations, the Estate has focused on community, environmental stewardship, heritage and culture. Lady Clare, like her grandfather Duke Bernard and her aunt Lady Mary before her, is committed to ensuring that these continue to be the core values of the Estate.
