Drum Farm is situated in the north-east of Scotland, to the east of the town of Keith in an area known for its productive farmland.

Keith Golf Club has an 18-hole parkland golf course. Other courses in the area include Buckpool at Buckie, Banff, Macduff, Elgin and Lossiemouth.
The nearest primary schools are in Keith, with secondary education at Keith Grammar School. Gordonstoun is about 27 miles away.
Inverness and Aberdeen Airports are easily reached via the A96 and Inverness and Aberdeen provide all the facilities expected of a major city. There is a railway station in Keith on the Aberdeen to Inverness line.
The Moray coast, about 10 miles to the north, is famed for its high sunshine rate, beautiful beaches, dolphins, wonderful sailing, and traditional fishing villages and towns, such as Portsoy and Banff. To the south-west lie the Cairngorms, offering wonderful walking and mountaineering. There is skiing at the Lecht ski centre and at Cairngorm Mountain near Aviemore.
The farm is situated close to the famous Speyside area of the Scottish malt whisky distilling industry, that is not only a popular draw for tourists following the Malt Whisky Trail, but also a useful outlet for malting barley.
Moray is well served by agricultural merchants and grain merchants and there is a successful local machinery ring which can provide additional farming resources as required.
