It was our pleasure to welcome Roddy Martine of Scotland Magazine to Broomhall House, ahead of a special feature on the ancestral home of the Bruce family.
The article, appearing in the latest edition of Scotland Magazine, delves into the extraordinary history of our home, exploring what makes it such a sought after experience for international travelers to Scotland.
One of Scotland’s grandest houses, Broomhall House has been lived in, cherished and cared for by the family of King Robert the Bruce for over 300 years. With its internationally important collection of fine arts and artefacts, including the Sword of State of King Robert the Bruce, the story of our home is interwoven with that of Scotland and the widespread travels of the Bruce family.
Tracing the captivating stories contained within Broomhall – of explorers, diplomats, entrepreneurs and statesmen of the Bruce family – the article explores how more recently, our home has been the prestigious venue of choice for private events, including an awards ceremony for the Polar Academy, Scotland’s first model UN General Assembly for primary school children, and bespoke launch events for global brands such as McLaren Automotive and Rolls-Royce. In 2019 we hosted the first ever New World cigar and single malt whisky fusion festival, and regularly host whisky tasting events.
It has also been our particular pleasure to welcome small groups of visitors for intimate pre-booked tours of our historic home. While the hospitality sector seeks to recover from the ongoing pandemic, Lord Bruce looks forward to arranging private guided tours with privileged access for those seeking a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Scotland Magazine have kindly allowed us to share images of this feature, available in full in the latest edition of the publication (March/April 2021).
