A clan whose lives and times are steeped in high drama and romance, it was in the thirteenth century that they took their name from the lands they had been granted at Drymen, near Loch Lomond.
With the motto of ‘Gang (Go) warily’, they rose to prominence as they acquired honours and distinction not least in their role as staunch defenders of Scotland’s freedom and independence.
Sir Malcolm Drummond fought at the side of the great warrior king Robert the Bruce at the battle of Bannockburn in 1314, being rewarded with further lands in Perthshire.
Celebrated for her beauty and intelligence, Annabella Drummond became queen to Robert 111, who reigned from 1390 to 1406.
The Drummonds were also at the forefront of the ultimately ill-fated Jacobite cause to restore the Royal House of Stuart to the throne, active in both the 1715 and 1745 Risings.
Chronicled here is the stirring tale of the Drummonds.
