We really enjoyed our tour of the castle and found it very interesting we liked the fact that it is a guided tour and you are able to ask questions and have things explained which was very good. We had lunch in the tea room which was very nice and very well priced (in our opinion) the staff at the... More

We were taken a back that we had to pay £2 to park but decided to go ahead anyway and were glad we did. Enjoyed the walk by the pond and then joined a tour around the castle. Worth the cost of £10.50 each, so much to see and our guide was very informative. The homemade cakes in the tea... More

Really great castle. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the inside, our tour guide Tony was very funny and informative. Tearoom was excellent as was the lovely ladies running it. So would definitely recommend Brodie Castle.

We were visiting family in Scotland and with the weather fine had a ride out in the car, near Elgin we typed in places of interest and saw Brodie Castle and decided on a visit. It is not a castle like Warwick of such like rather a fortified house. Set in lovely ground which apart from a pay and display... More

Our male tour guide (11th August) was informative and amusing - it was a brilliant tour full of facts and info that you would otherwise not have known. Well worth a visit and he coped admirably with our group who were over subscribed, after a few interlopers joined us as they obviously felt they couldn't wait for their allotted time

Popped into Castle for a quick look and ended up staying for the one hour guided walk and lunch. Guide was friendly, knowledgeable and clearly loved her job. Felt untouched and ye olde worlde, lots of nice wee touches including the last clan chief's request to allow people to play the piano. Worth a visit.

I visited Brodie on Thu, 14 Aug 2014 and was on the early afternoon tour at 1:15 pm. Our tour guide was fantastic (unfortunately do not remember his name) and he made the tour most enjoyable by pointing out and explaining details which we might otherwise have missed, he told us various anecdotes with a witty sense of humour, he...

I was given a tour in a group-you can't stroll around on your own. It was interesting to imagine how people lived in times when you had to defend your castle by living on upper floors, and making access difficult to marauders. Nice panelled library. Cafe dark, on the ground floor.
