"Dalguise House, a rather stark estate with beautifully landscaped gardens, was begun in 1714 and enlarged in the early nineteenth century, making it more suitable for holiday entertaining. The Laird of Dalguise, John Steuart, although an absentee owner, kept the estate well stocked with game and its many outbuildings in good condition with capable managers. The summer of 1871 was the beginning of a decade of summers Beatrix spent at Dalguise - a place which immediately became home to her heart. The Scottish landscape provided a feast for her eye, nourishment for her imagination and freedom for her spirit. It was this landscape against which she would compare all others, and upon which she would base her aesthetic value of nature." - Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature, Linda Lear, p. 27.
