Dunrobin is the largest house in
the Scottish Highlands. A 13th century keep is surrounded by a series of
additions from the 16th century onwards and is no longer visible from
outside the Castle. Additions by Sir James Barry in the 1840ís give the
Castle the look of a French chateau. There are many rooms but
the principal rooms include the Drawing Room with tapestries; the Green
and Gold Room, where Queen Victoria stayed in 1872; the Dukeís study, that
has secret doors and stairways connecting to other rooms in the Castle.
Sir Robert Lorimerís sycamore library contains more than 10,000 volumes.
The castle has many interesting artefacts and large formal gardens.
in the grounds is an old museum. There are also forest walks with
some lovely coastal views.
