We visited Brodie Castle yesterday. Fascinating. Beautiful furniture, Artwork and china. A Guide in most rooms, who were very friendly and welcoming. More than happy to tell you about the room, it's contents and answer any questions. Really enjoyed the trip.

Brodie Castle is currently trialling non-guided tours. Please call ahead first to ensure you can book for this as opposed to the guided tour, if this is your preference.

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.
