Drum Castle

Deeside Tourist Route

Granted to William de Irwyn by King Robert the Bruce in 1323, Drum Castle’s origins date back to medieval times. See with your own eyes how this fascinating castle has been expanded over the centuries – from the original square tower of the 13th century, to the Jacobean mansion house and later Victorian additions. Owned by the Irvine family until 1975, there are plenty of antiques, treasures and mementos of family life to discover inside too. Afterwards smell the luscious perfumes in the Garden of Historic Roses and take a stroll through the ancient oak woodland in the Old Wood of Drum.
