Satinder Kaur is a history graduate from Irvine who helps oversee Dumfries Houses’s world-famous collection of 18th Century furniture and artwork. Satinder, a former pupil of Marr College in Troon, assists curator Janet Casey with the maintenance and preservation of the world-famous collection at Dumfries House. The 26-year-old, who has a BA (hons) degree in history and a master’s degree in museum studies, gained experience through volunteering at Culzean Castle and Auschwitz and working at Dean Castle before gaining full-time employment at Dumfries House.
Satinder said: “I took a tour of Dumfries House when I was at university and was fascinated by the fact that the collection is still in the building it was originally commissioned for. As my background is in Scottish history, I appreciate the significance of the house and knew I had to apply for the job as soon as it became available. I’m really enjoying my new role and feel very lucky to work there as every day is different and I am constantly learning.”
