Dunrobin Castle - Scotland

TOUR THE CASTLE (continued)

Queen’s Corridor
A watercolour by Eugene Lami shows a reception being held at Stafford House (now Lancaster House) featuring Queen Victoria. These parties were very fashionable and were known as Crushes; you put on your finest clothes and stood around chatting for a couple of hours, but you would not be offered food or drink!

The Ladies’ Sitting Room
The tapestries on the wall were commissioned for Queen Victoria’s visit in 1872, and a picture of Dunrobin is woven into the centre of two of them. Traditionally this room was used as a quiet place for the ladies of the house to pursue such hobbies as embroidery.
