The Lorimer Drawing Room

This enormous, elegant Drawing Room was added in 1920. Designed by the leading Scottish architect of the day, Sir Robert Lorimer, the room is enriched by a magnificent ceiling of ornate plasterwork that exemplifies Lorimer's classic approach to design. A very special adornment is the beautiful marble fireplace surround.

The Writing Room

One of the principal rooms of the ancient fortified tower house, the Writing Room is adorned with an Adam fireplace and commands a sweeping view of the formal garden. The addition of a large table provides meeting capacity for up to twelve people.

The Robert the Bruce Hall

This splendid hall originally greeted visitors arriving through the 1811 Georgian entrance. It now forms the centrepiece of Drumkilbo House, and has recently been restored under the supervision of Historic Scotland. The medieval 13th century round tower has now been exposed to view and provides a breathtaking glimpse of the past.

The Billiard Room

What better place is there to retire after a day in the outdoors than the billiard room? The full-size Drumkilbo billiard/snooker table is a century old and has been the focal point for many convivial evenings.
