Royal Marine Hotel
History of the Royal Marine Hotel
Sir Robert Lorimer designed the original mansion house in 1913 as a private home for a northern industrialist. The property was built a few years before Lorimer’s return to Brora, immediately after the First World War, when he was commissioned by The Duke of Sutherland to restore Dunrobin Castle, which had been ravaged by fire in 1915.
The ambiance of the Royal Marine Hotel owes everything to Sir Robert Lorimer: The wooden arches of the entrance hall; the formal dining room, the panelled snooker room and the grand staircase all contribute to an atmosphere of quiet elegance.
Bedrooms 1 to 6, 7, 8,12,14, 22 & 23 are parts of the original House.
Later addition in 1997 are bedrooms 9 to 11 & 15 to 21.
