Accessing Scotland's Past Project

Drumin is a large farmsteading depicted on the current Ordnance Survey map, situated on a prominent bluff at the confluence of the Rivers Livet and Avon. Within its grounds lie the ruins of Drumin Castle.

The 1st edition of the Ordnance Survey 6-inch map of Banffshire (1872) shows that at this date Drumin was a sizeable steading, with its own mill, as a dam and sluice are depicted, evidently in working order.
