Description: The quintessential Victorian ‘Highland’ estate, Brodick Castle, Garden...
The quintessential Victorian ‘Highland’ estate, Brodick Castle, Garden & Country Park on the Isle of Arran is the perfect place for a family day out.Dramatically set against the backdrop of Goatfell mountain, the grand red sandstone Scottish baronial-style castle has stunning views over Brodick Bay to the Firth of Clyde. The grounds and surrounds are worthy of a visit alone – from the W A Nesfield-influenced landscaped gardens to the woodland trails, wildlife ponds and waterfalls, there’s plenty to explore outdoors in Britain’s only island country park. Brodick Castle is packed full of treasures too – it’s renowned for its impressive collections of period furniture, silverware, porcelain, paintings and sporting trophies.

We paid to visit the garden only as we are not so interested in stately homes. It's a lovely estate with walks all over including a footpath up to Goatfell. For a laugh we decided to follow the kids trail and were really impressed by the yarn-bombed sites. A great deal of effort has gone into making a trail of... More

This castle is beautiful. The gardens are immaculate & well maintained. The castle is very impressive. The rooms are decorated as they were back in the day. Some of the furnishings are truly amazing. The staff are all very friendly & knowledgeable. A must see.

Situated in beautiful grounds, the Castle is a fascinating place to visit. Each room has a knowledgeable guide and the Castle was not too busy despite it being Bank Holiday

We walked from Auchrannie Hotel then back along the deserted beach, having used our English NT card .Didnt go in, as the gardens were at a spring time peak, with camelias and rhododendrons, We also went on a signed estate walk which was lovely . Slight beware, there is clearly less business than on the mainland, so maintenance and sign... More

First view of the castle made me think, " what's this, have they tacked on a false front, like the store fronts in old Western movies?" Inside looked more promising, but I really don't get the no photography, no flash sure, and some museums have just such a sign, "NO FLASH", it works. The first part, the rooms where the... More

Grounds are a delight to explore. Very well maintained and the adventure park for the children was enjoyed by us all. The tour of the castle was much enjoyed. It has such a homely atmosphere and the guides were most appreciated with their information. Our young 4yr and 3yr olds really enjoyed the 'Hunt the Bogles'. Being rewarded by a... More

Beautiful castle with extensive gardens. Go a little further and explore the many trails. Staff in the castle were extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. I particularly liked the kitchens which were set out exactly as they would have been. The little cafe is certainly work a visit too.
