Drumkilbo House is a house overflowing with history. The first recorded owner of Drumkilbo was King Robert the Bruce and in the more recent past frequented by the royal family. Drumkilbo is available to let on a self-catered, exclusive use basis.

Just an hour’s drive from Edinburgh Airport, Drumkilbo 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. Ideal for large family groups and celebrations.

The present house incorporates the remains of a fortified tower dating from the 13th century.
Over the centuries the house has been extended and more recently in 1953, the 17th Baron Elphinstone, a cousin of HM The Queen, acquired the Estate. He was responsible for establishing the majority of the planting that is seen in the gardens today. He also wished to entertain his royal relations more comfortably and a new wing, incorporating the Royal Apartments, was added in 1963.

Drumkilbo House is set amidst sixteen acres of landscaped grounds containing many fine mature specimen trees, azalea and rhododendron walks, a walled garden, terraces and a croquet lawn.
