Drummond Castle Keep

Door open days

Perth & Kinross

An impressive tower-house built on a rocky outcrop by John, the 1st Lord Drummond in the late-15th century, now part of the extensive Drummond Castle. The Renaissance-style gatehouse by John Mylne III, Charles I's master mason, was added circa 1630.

The keep was damaged by Cromwell and was dismantled further after the 1745 Rebellion to prevent Government troops using it as a garrison. It was repaired in 1822, with an upper floor and bell-cote added in 1853. Drummond Castle is world famous for its remarkable gardens.

Located to the north-west of Muthill with access off the A822. Park in the Gardens car park
