Take a guided tour of the castle, explore the lovely gardens and grounds and enjoy a snack in the tea room. Don't miss the walled garden and the trail through the Pinetum featuring carved wooden figures from Shakespeare's Macbeth.

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.
