Drum Castle, Garden & Estate, Aberdeen Reviews

  • Nice Castle with lovely gardens and a superb children's adventure playground on site. Downfalls is the price of admission, which we didn't pay, as you can get enough out of the place by looking around the grounds. Doesn't seem worth a tenner each. You also have to pay to see the gardens, which is harder to understand and seems a bit greedy. Tea shop is cramped, limited in choice and expensive. Staff are very friendly and welcoming however. The Chapel is worth a visit. If you already have a national trust membership then it would be a decent couple of hours spent. But if not, it's a lot of cash for a nice view. The kids adventure playground is a worthwhile distraction though.

  • A lovely setting to this castle. We arrived on a quiet Friday morning and got our own personal guided tour. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the property, and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We stopped for lunch at the Cafe. The choice was good and the food was rather tasty. We followed that with a walk round the gardens and grounds. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

  • Beautiful castle with all the history attached. The rooms inside were authentically presented with original paintings and furniture. Our tour was guided by a lovely and extremely knowledgeable lady who had been a tour guide for over twenty years. Well worth a visit.

  • Friendly and helpful National Trust staff. As expected plenty of historical facts and information to absorb. Pleasant cafe with the option to eat inside or out. Interesting exhibition of a 70's clothes and fabric designer. Beautiful and extensive gardens.

  • Loved this castle. Very good guide. Roses in garden beautiful. Kept the kids interested !
