Dunrobin Castle - Scotland

the breakfast room

Only the gentlemen had breakfast in this room, while the ladies were served in their rooms upstairs.  Paintings include a portrait of the Duchess-Countess by Hoppner, The Breakfast by Sir David Wilkie, and John Granville, Earl of Bath by Michael Wright.  The portrait of Mary Maxwell by Ramsay is one of the best that he ever painted when at the height of his career.

the drawing room

As with the other principle rooms in the Castle, the Drawing Room Drawing Roomwas redesigned by Sir Robert Lorimer in 1915 after the fire that very nearly destroyed the Castle altogether.  The fire was put out by the lucky arrival of hundreds of sailors from Royal Navy ships that were lying off the coast.  At the time the Castle was a naval hospital, so they were keen to make sure nothing untoward happened to their shipmates.
