Extending over three floors Drimnin House 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 and an extra annexe to the main house.
The house is noted for its high-ceilinged rooms; the intricate faux marble, floral wall paintings and ornate cornices, which had originally 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. 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.
