Drumkilbo is not a hotel; it is a private family home, and the informal look and
feel of the interior of the House reflects this. The House is offered for your exclusive use
and you are invited to regard it as your home during your stay.
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 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 Dining Room
The Dining Room
The perfectly proportioned Dining Room with its inspiring view of the garden is a joyful place to dine and seats a maximum of 28 guests around a boardroom-style table. Its impressive marble
fire surround was moved from Carberry Tower. The Dining Room is a perfect place to entertain and for an evening event makes the house come alive with radiance.
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
conference table provides boardroom-meeting capacity for up to one dozen persons.
The Sitting Room
This large room features a splendid bay window with comfortable seating overlooking the formal
garden. It is an ideal location to enjoy Drumkilbo's famous afternoon teas, replete with
home-baked scones and cakes with jams and preserves made from garden fruits.
This fascinating room commands the best view of the swimming pool. It dates from the early 19th
century and was remodelled by Sir Robert Lorimer. It is an ideal seminar room for groups of up
to fifteen persons.
The Hall Room
This cosy enclave off the main hall is ideal for small breakaway groups. It is comfortably
furnished for up to six persons.
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.
