Overview
More
A clan chief's treasure house, generations of Clan Brodie have lived and died within Brodie Castle. On the tour can be seen a letter from Robert the Bruce, the coronation robe worn by Queen Adelaide in 1831, antique furniture and ceramics and an extensive art collection, including three works by the Scottish Colourists. This 16th-century castle is a slice of Scottish history not to be missed. There's plenty to discover outside the castle too. The 71 hectare estate has landscaped gardens, a large pond, a walled garden, a woodland walk, an adventure playground and a nature trail with observation hides for watching wildlife.

It was nice to have a guided tour of the castle. It was built over a long period of time and the guide pointed out which parts of the castle were built when. Our guide was jammed full of information and it was not easy...More

But the grounds and exterior weren't as impressive, and for the price I saw people paying, I thought it wasn't worth it. (I'm a National Trust member so nothing out of pocket). What I do like about this - it's a guided tour. Some prefer...More

We didn't go inside the castle but gladly paid the £3 parking charge and spent a few hours walking the grounds. The cafe has very nice food at very good prices. Ploughmans lunch for under a fiver. A very affordable place to take the family.

Hi, I'm not sure about the times for the Tours, we called the castle before arriving and didn't do a tour as I am in a wheelchair and can walk a little but very slowly.
