English: Durisdeer is a small village in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. It lies north of Thornhill, above the Carron Water, a tributary of the Nith. A Roman road once passed through the site of the village, and the remains of a small fort are located to the north-east. The parish church in the village serves Drumlanrig Castle, the 17th century home of the Duke of Queensberry. It was rebuilt by the third Duke in the 1720s, to designs by James Smith. Adjoining the church is the slightly earlier Queensberry Aisle, burial place of the dukes, also by Smith, with a large marble monument to the second Duke (1662-1711) carved by Jan van Nost.
