      Hi Jim, No the licence that the Buccleuch Estate sells covers the Mennock Pass mainly. When we are closed gold panning licences can be obtained from the Estate Office at Drumlanrig Castle, their opening hours are 0930hrs to 1630hrs Monday to Friday 01848 600403. I hope this helps? Kind regards M
