Drimnin Estate is a beautiful coastal estate on the west coast of Scotland between the Isle of Mull and Ardnamurchan. It is situated on the little known, unspoiled Morvern peninsula and offers guest accommodation all year round
Jutting into the Atlantic but sheltered between Ardnamurchan to the north and the Isle of Mull to the south, Drimnin Estate occupies 7,000 acres of the western tip of the little-known Morvern peninsula – one of Scotland’s best kept secrets. Combining rugged coastline, ancient woodland, heather moorland and rich pastures, Drimnin lies at the end of the public road, undisturbed by traffic and a haven for wildlife, and those who love history, nature and solitude.
The Estate has had a fascinating, often dramatic and sometimes tragic history, which is reflected in its buildings and ruins and its traditions. Today the estate is a productive farm, offers stalking and fishing, a variety of holiday accommodation including the neo-gothic style 19th century Drimnin House, is home to a resident wildlife and landscape artist and hosts weddings, ceremonies, religious services and musical events in the recently-restored chapel. The farm has Luing and Highland cattle, several breeds of sheep and wild deer on the hill, selling meat locally. Visitors can enjoy exploring the rugged coast line, the walk to the former inn at Doirlinn, along the old coastal drove road or simply relax in this tranquil and beautiful location.
Drimnin House Sleeps 16 (+4) and has a beautiful garden which also provides a perfect marquee setting overlooking the sea. It is surrounded by extensive woodlands, including ancient Caledonian oak woods and coniferous forest, untamed mountains and open pastures. Deer and other wildlife graze on the open hillside, while otters are often spotted by the shore and a variety of raptors; eagles, buzzards etc. seen flying overhead. The Estate also boasts miles of rocky coastline with inlets and coves, interspersed with pebble-covered beaches.
