Bring some colour into your life this summer. Now open daily, the National Trust for Scotland’s Drum Castle at Drumoak, Aberdeenshire, is hosting a contemporary art exhibition titled ‘Northern Lights’. The exhibition comprises some key pieces of art from Aberdeen Art Gallery which is currently undergoing a major refurbishment.

The exhibition features more than 30 paintings and sculptures along with some digital video and includes works by John Byrne, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Joan Eardley, Elizabeth Blackadder, John Bellany, and SJ Peploe. A must see for a discerning art lover.

Property Manager Alison Burke said: ‘Northern Lights spans four centuries of art from 17th century paintings to contemporary DVD installations. The collection shines a light on key works on loan from Aberdeen Art Gallery while it remains closed for refurbishment.’


Drum Castle is situated 10 miles west of Aberdeen off the A93. The castle is set in extensive grounds with walks, picnic area, an historic rose garden, adventure play area, tearoom and shop. Normal castle admission charges apply.
