Drumlithie is a village in the northeast of Scotland in the area known as the Howe o' the Mearns. Situated seven miles south of Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, it is affectionately known by locals as 'Skite', although the origin of this name remains disputed.
Previously a weaving village, Drumlithie has a small steeple at its heart which was rung to signal the start and end of the working day. Ask a local what happens to the steeple when it rains and it is sure to raise a smile. Story has it that villagers are so proud of it that they take it in when it rains. These days the only time the bell can be heard ringing round the village is to welcome in the New Year, but it is also rung for weddings and births.
Drumlithie is noted for its appearance in the classic Lewis Grassic Gibbon novel, 'Sunset Song', while neighbouring Glenbervie is the final resting place of the great grandparents of famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. Drumlithie is also twinned with Couture-d'Argenson in France.
The village school is called Glenbervie Primary, and is attended by around 70 local children from the village and surrounding area.
Other amenities include a friendly local pub, bowling green, a park and a village hall. There is an annual Christmas light turn on which is held in the village hall each year as well as the over 60's Christmas lunch. Drumlithie has its village shop back - Steeple Shop opened on 9 April 2012 and sells local produce, a selection of specialty items, as well as day to day necessities.
The park contains a football pitch and tennis court, and serves as the school playing field. It also plays host to the annual Drumlithie Gala, which is held on the second Saturday of June each year with raffle stalls, coconut shy, kids & adult races and lots, lots more it's a great day to visit the village. The finale of the gala is the Single vs Married Men's football match, which is a good humoured, but fiercely contested game.
Drumlithie has three church services every month. On the first Sunday, there is a Church of Scotland meeting at Glenbervie Parish Church just outside the village, St John the Baptist Scottish Episcopal Church holds a service on the fourth Sunday of the month (and also on the fifth when this occurs) and on the fourth Sunday Drumlithie Community Church meets either at the village hall or Bowling club.
There are many groups and clubs in the village - Harvey Bugs (Forest school); Pre-school; Baby & Toddler Group; After school care DASH (Drumlithie After School Help); Art Classes, Bowling Club, Horticultural Club, Drumlithie Events Committee; Drumlithie Improvement Group; Community Association, WRI Group. There is also a Wee Free Library in the village.
