 Blair Drummond safari park opened in 1970 in the grounds of Blair Drummond house, which was purchased by Sir John Kay a Glasgow tea merchant in 1916. Having no sons he passed it to his nephew Sir John Muir, father of the present owner Jamie Muir. The house remained a family home until 1977 when it was sold to the Camphill Trust, a charity that cares for the handicapped. The existing late Victorian house replaced a mansion house built in 1715, which was sited in what is now the giraffe enclosure. . AboutScotland
