From 1931 until 1993 the house was used by Oxenfoord Castle School, founded by Lady Marjorie Dalrymple, sister of John Dalrymple, 11th Earl of Stair. Since 1993, the house has reverted to private use by the Dalrymple family and has been used as a venue for weddings, private parties, corporate events and filming.
