Stobhall has been the ancestral home for the Drummond family since 1397. 

Its illustrious history is a strong Jacobite one, with whom the Drummonds sided.  It

has been the home for romance and the ancestress to all the future sovereigns of

Scotland and the United Kingdom., been confiscated by the Cromwellians during the

Civil War, sheltered Bonnie Prince Charles, and seized by the British Crown.

It is with great pleasure that we offer these rare table knives from this collection.
