A Highland Retreat

The present building in the eccentric neo-gothic style dates from about 1850 after the earlier house, which stood on the same spot, was destroyed by fire in 1849, when the Estate was owned by the Gordon family. Extending over three floors it has some 30 rooms, including eight bedrooms and reception rooms with stunning views over the Sound of Mull. The top floor originally provided accommodation for servants and a Catholic chapel which at one time replaced the chapel on the shore below. To the rear is a housekeeper’s cottage named after Ena, the last resident housekeeper, and is now restored to use as holiday accommodation.

The house is noted for its high-ceilinged rooms; the intricate faux marble, floral wall paintings and ornate cornices, which had originally been by the leading Edinburgh decorator, D.R.Hay. It has recently been completely renovated, transforming it into a warm, luxurious and environmentally-friendly home.   Much of the furniture dates from the mid-nineteenth century, and at least one piece bears the charred marks of the 1849 fire.  The garden includes an original Victorian parterre and is sheltered by the house on one side, the old farm buildings on another and cliffs at the back.

Drimnin House is available for family holidays and special occasions such as weddings, vow renewals, christenings, corporate activities, country pursuits and film sets.

Drimnin House from A&GJ 29/7/15

“Thank you for a great stay with you. We appreciated all the trouble you went to to make our stay so enjoyable including putting beautiful flowers in the bedrooms and on the tables, preparing delicious meals and checking we were warm enough.  We found plenty of easy parking, beautiful views, hot water at all times, everything working efficiently and so much more.  This is what made your house so special. Thank you.”
