Host Info

Host Review Score

Thrumster House was built in about 1790, by Capt. David Brodie, tacksman (large leaseholder) to Sir John Sinclair. It stands on the site of a previous building, of unknown structure, but probably a small fortified house. It was built on a fairly simple plan, with two back-to-back blocks, and a small wing to each side. The rest of the house consists of later, mid-Victorian additions. There are sunken cellars to the rear of the house (which used to be the front!), from one room of which, a small underground passage passes under the main hall - unfortunately not an interesting early feature, but made by builders when the house was first wired for electricity in the 1930s.
We love the outdoor country life, walking the dogs, playing piano and gardening.
The area we live has a wealth of wildlife, beautiful coastal scenery and we are in the centre of an ancient landscape comprised of many archaeological sites stretching back to the mesolithic era. We have a broch in the grounds and are mile from the Yarrows Archaeological Trail
