History

Built by the Drummond family in 1812 and designed by Edinburgh architect James Gillespie Graham, it is a castellated neo-gothic mansion with everything you would expect in such a grand house. Rich in heritage it has an interesting story as a family home, private prep school and restaurant.

During World War II, Drumtochty Castle was bought by the Norwegian government in exile and used as a boarding school for Norwegian children who were refugees from the German occupation of Norway. It was known as little Norway.

The remarkable renovation project by Charlie and Dorothy Anderson over 20 years ago has seen Drumtochty Castle transformed to an exceptionally high standard of fixtures and fittings, elevating the ruin to a luxury castle and one of Scotland’s most prestigious wedding venues.
