Drum Castle **

<<<<<                              >>>>>

Description:

In 1323 the castle was granted to William de Irwyn by King Robert the Bruce. The castle remained within the Irvine family until 1975, when it was handed over to the National trust of Scotland.

The High Hall of the castle tower is still in its medieval state which is accessed by a narrow newel stair offering fine views from the battlements. The original house was enlarged with the creation of a very fine Jacobean mansion house in 1619 and a later addition during the reign of Queen Victoria.
