My main purpose in visiting was to take my 2 teen daughters to the place connected to my great great grandmother. I visited some 19 years ago, not sure if it was the case then but unfortunately you can only be accompanied by a guide when looking through the Castle. The tour was very interesting but I would have liked... More

At first sight this appears to be not a real castle because of the Victorian extensions but the origins go back to the 12th century so it does have a lot of history. You have to go around the castle itself with a tour guide in small groups which takes about an hour, so it is not the best place... More

We joined the Scottish National Trust in June as we were spending three weeks travelling around Scotland. We are so glad we did. Brodie Castle was the nicest castle we visited, not only for the wonderful castle and grounds, but for the couple of extras which made it so memorable. We were welcomed warmly in the foyer by Nicola and... More

We visited this castle in June 2014, whilst holidaying in Scotland. It is a National Trust Scotland property. We are UK National Trust members, but we did visit this building for free. Very interesting history and we had a good and interesting tour guide. When you arrive, you are allocated a particular time for a tour, so if it is... More

Our tour guide was Trevor and he had a wonderful repertoire of stories and information to tell that brought the story of Brodie Castle and it's family to life. It takes just over an hour and is worth every moment. We thoroughly recommend you visit.

We thought we had checked the opening times of Brodie Castle, but when we arrived we found it was shut on Fridays (and Saturdays!) We visited in June and would have thought something like this would be open every day duringw hat is,after all, holiday season in the rest of the Highlands. Very disappointing indeed and no real sign until... More

We arrived at Brodie Castle and just caught the last tour of the day. Only 6 of us on the tour which was an great number to gain informative stories relating to the castle. Don't leave it too late in the afternoon to visit as the doors had to be unlocked to let us out. National Trust property so free... More
