Drum Castle
Drum Castle
Category A listed the 70ft tower was completed late in the 13th century possibly by Richard Cementarius. The 9th Laird added a wing in 1619 with substantial additions designed by David Bryce in 1876. Robert the Bruce granted the Barony of Drum and estate to William de Irwyn in about 1323 to oversee the Royal Forest of Drum of which 117 acres remain. Now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland the estate remained in the hands of Clan Irvine until 1975 but financial problems led to loss of much of the estate in 1736.
