Welcome to Kildrummy Inn, a historic establishment nestled in the heart of Aberdeenshire’s picturesque countryside. Steeped in rich history dating back to 1828, our inn has been a fixture in the local community for generations.

In 1828, the Aberdeen Press and Journal announced the availability of The Society House at Kildrummy for lease as an inn, boasting ample accommodation and a prime location along the route of the Lord Forbes Coach. Since then, Kildrummy Inn has been a hub of activity, serving travellers and locals alike with warmth and hospitality.

Throughout the years, Kildrummy Inn has witnessed significant events, from discussions about road damage due to flooding in 1829 to the warm welcome of new Laird John Joseph Gordon in 1858. Our connections with the Forbes family have added layers of cultural richness to our story, reflecting the diverse tapestry of our heritage.

Over the decades, Kildrummy Inn has evolved with the times while preserving its timeless charm. From the opening of the Volunteer Hall in 1866 to fundraising efforts for community projects like the construction of a bridge over the River Don in 1877, our inn has remained a vital part of local life.

Not without its share of colourful anecdotes, Kildrummy Inn has weathered challenges with resilience. From incidents involving “obstreperous vagrants” in 1883 to legal matters concerning the sale of alcohol outside licensed hours in 1910, each chapter of our history is marked by the strength of our community bonds.

As we take the Inn through the next stages of its colourful life, it continues to be a beacon of warmth and hospitality. Whether you’re joining us for a meal, a celebrations, a cozy stay, or a memorable event like the Ploughman’s Ball of 1906, you’re welcomed with open arms and genuine Scottish hospitality.

Today, as we invite you to experience the timeless allure of Kildrummy Inn, you become a part of our story. Whether you’re exploring the stunning landscapes of Aberdeenshire or simply seeking a peaceful retreat from the bustle of modern life, we look forward to sharing our history, hospitality, and heartfelt traditions with you.
