House of History
Dunrobin Castle is a stately home in Sutherland in the Highlands and, with its majestic turrets and spires, looks like something straight out of a Disney film. History buffs will love learning about its origins in the Middle Ages and the many additions made to the building since. The French Châteaux style building is counted as the largest house in the North of Scotland and was, until fairly recently, a boarding school. It even served as a hospital during the First World War. The castle has been home to the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland since the 13th century. The Earldom of Sutherland is one of the seven ancient Earldoms of Scotland and the family was once one of the most powerful in Britain.
As well as the castle itself, there is a museum to learn even more about Dunrobin’s history. There are also fine gardens and even a falconry.
