Artist's Description

This pride of Lions were lazing in the purpose built shade at Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland.

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 people with special needs.

The existing late – Victorian house replaced a mansion house built in 1715, which was sited in what is now the giraffe enclosure. Most of the remaining trees in the park date from the period of the earlier house.
