  • Drum Castle is one of the oldest in Scotland and has enjoyed housing 24 generations of the Irvine family for over 6 centuries!

    It was given to the National Trust of Scotland in 1975 by the last Laird of Drum. Just 8 miles from Aberdeen the castle overlooks the River Dee and has 3 different architectural styles – medieval, Jacobean and Victorian!

    The medieval tower was built way back in teh 13th Century with the Jacobean mansion added in 1619 and the Victorian part in 1872. Inside are memories from the past including portraits, furniture and vaulted ceilings decorated with shields in the great hall.

    There are huge grounds attached to the castle and beautiful gardens and in the 1930’s a golf course was added and a stunning Pond Garden was built by the Trust. The Garden of Historic Roses was opened by the trust in 1991 to mark the castle’s Diamond Jubilee. Divided into four quadrants, each has a design from one of the last four centuries and roses from that period.

    Drum Castle is open for tours and available for weddings and corporate hire.
