Drum Castle, Garden & Estate, Aberdeen Reviews - Write a Review

  • A lovely castle, with beautiful rooms in great condition and richly furnished. The guides in each room are very knowledgeable and friendly. They're happy to talk to you for hours, I suspect, but also happy to let you wander on your own if you're in a hurry. I got a dose of history in the living room, and then skipped the rest due to time. The Library is particularly impressive, but also the nursery. Then you go outside and up into the original tower, which is above the library - quite an amazing sense of history here, in a castle that was continuously occupied by one family for 600 years. The surrounds are beautiful, as is the little chapel. The staff were talking about very tangible experiences of a ghost or ghosts!

  • One of the best castle we visited in Scotland. It's not too big, but very old (oldest parts 700 years old), the stuff is very nice and helpful. Great guided tour. The garden is worth a visit as well.

  • Good day out the gardens are fantastic, loved the outdoor wildlife garden. The castle was pretty good, however was a bit annoyed that they had painted one of the floors white to display modern photographs in a gallery and felt it took away from the natural history of the property.

  • What a beautiful castle,the tea room was under renovation, you could still buy cakes and coffee, but they also have lots of picnic tables and bring your own picnic. Gardens are also beautiful.nice back drop for wedding photos

  • Beautiful castle and gardens. Really enjoyed the visit and planning to return!
