The castle and grounds were BEAUTIFUL! The guided tour was interested and with good humor. The rooms of the tour seems to offer an older time period than other castles as well as newer. Our family would recommend a visit.

Attended the Christmas market on both the Saturday and Sunday and it was excellent. A great range of crafts and ideal Christmas gifts. The comprehensive food carts also served outstanding snacks etc.

Response from Glamis_Castle | Property representative |
yes, all our tours are guided, in English and take approximately 50 minutes to an hour. The tour is 10 rooms going from the grand (State Dining Room/Drawing Room) to the more intimate Royal Apartments of The Queen Mother.
