Drumin Castle

After extensive stabilisation work to make the castle safe, the Crown Estate, helped by the Tenants of Drumin Farm and with part funding from other organisations, have opened this Scheduled Monument to the public.

A car park has been constructed by the River Livet and a 500 metre footpath climbs through the mature trees on the slopes below the Castle into the old walled kitchen garden where you can view and gain access to the Castle itself. The walk then circles out further along the banking offering impressive views of the local area as befits such a site of strategic importance.

The car park is also sited on the route of the longer Drumin Circular Walk (approximately 2 miles), which follows the river Livet before climbing up past Glenlivet School and returning through pine and larch woodland.

Officially opened on the 14th of July 2005 by HRH Prince Andrew this is a legacy to the Late Cathy Reid of Drumin Farm who was the driving force behind the origin of the project and an enthusiastic supporter of the later developments. It is an example of commitment by the Crown Estate, partner organisations and individuals who have helped with the project over a number of years showing just what can be achieved by working in co-operation.
