Welcome to Drum Castle

Take in an enormous sweep of Scottish history as experienced by the Irvine family who lived in Drum Castle for over 650 years, from the 14th century onwards.

Within the castle, the beautifully restored Library is an elegant setting for civil, religious and humanist weddings. In addition, nestling in the grounds and surrounded by remnants of the ancient oak forest, Drum's 16th-century chapel is available for religious ceremonies.

During spring and summer, the Garden of Historic Roses is a feast for the senses: a kaleidoscope of colour and sweet with the scent of flowers from around the world. A romantic setting for alfresco weddings and photography, the walled garden also offers picturesque surroundings for drinks receptions, family gatherings or simply a relaxing stroll before being seated to dinner in the castle's richly appointed Dining Room.

Drum is one of Royal Deeside’s top historic attractions, just 10 miles from Aberdeen.
