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 will have to come back in the summer as it was closed but the grounds are fantastic and the kiddies play area looks as if it will be wonderful for all ages, we'll be back.

I really didnt enjoy this castle much since i think it lacked character. The entrance fees were very expensive and had different tickets to the gardens making it all the more inconvenient. There is a cafe which offers good coffee and shortbreads and ice-creams from arran diaries which are the only attractions i found worth visiting.

Took a stroll around the garden area to view the castle and it was gorgeous. The place is so well maintained and everything is in excellent condition. Lots of different paths to take and routes to follow.

Kids loved it, from the arran stone man finding game in the castle to the grounds and excellent play area we ended up going most days of our stay.

The only reason I haven't given this a great review is that everything was closed, even the toilets. The grounds themselves were lovely with some great views. I also managed to take some really nice pictures in the very short time we were there.

Looking for a change from playing golf (it was raining) and decided to see what Brodick castle had to offer. We weren't disappointed, there are guides in every section or room and it is worth taking time to look at some of the artifacts and bits & bobs of a life lived not so long ago.
