Drumbuie is one of eight crofting townships on the Balmacara Estate now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. The township continues to follow a traditional runrig system with crop rotation. In the 1970s, crofters here opposed plans to build oil production platforms offshore. The crofters were backed by the National Trust for Scotland and the proposal was turned down
