Really enjoyed the tour but the highlight had to be our walk round the Italian garden, pine forest and walled garden. Well worth a visit. :)

Visited on more than one occasion and I think that speaks for its self. This is a great day out for anyone. Although this is a living castle, with the family wing closed to tourists, the castle tour is well worth paying for, our guide Rod made ours entertaining with his anecdotes and ghost stories. The hub cafe, had lots... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and guided tour around Glamis recently. Beautiful weather allowed us to take time to enjoy the grounds, gardens and play area. Our guide, Gail was absolutely super - she really made it interesting and engaged the help of my 7 year old daughter throughout which made it extra special for her! The restaurant was lovely too...

What a stunning drive entrance to Glamis Castle. The grounds were lovely, the castle was so interesting and although I prefer to wander at my own pace, have to admit that the guided tour was better than I expected. The tour was extremely interesting and no matter what question you had, he knew the answer. The gardens are immaculately kept.... More

We went on this tour and we're not disappointed. It was the Queen Mums home as a child. It holds many amazing trinkets. The tour gives you a good taste of several rooms. The ghost stories are interesting as well. Make sure you go out to the back pasture to see the long haired cows. There is a nice cafe... More

This is an incredibly imposing castle, and we had a brilliant family visit there. My heart sank slightly when I realised that we had to wait for a guided tour, but actually, our guide made the whole visit very successful. She was full of facts and stories, but just the right amount, without the children getting bored. Glamis feels like... More

All staff on duty made visitors welcome. The tour through the castle was very interesting, with the guide knowledgable and taking time to allow visitors to explore each room - certainly did not feel as being rushed through. The gardens are worth a visit on their own and we shall certainly be back.

Two day event for one of the biggest gatherings of classic cars. Brilliant, from old to new and everything in between. Something for the whole family to enjoy.

We had not planned on this castle, but saw a sign on the hiway and I veered us off to find a new castle to explore. My 20yr old son and I had a long day of driving round trip and found this hidden gem aboit halfway between Aberdeen and Edinburgh. A lot of history as to be expected, a... More

First time at Glamis - felt there could have been more signage to direct you to the correct car parking area when you entered the front gate- member of staff at ticket booth wasn't exactly welcoming, however staff inside were very helpful and the gentleman carrying out the tour was very informative and kept the tour group involved throughout.
