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.

Extensive grounds and beautiful gardens worthy of at least a 2-3 hour visit. It was a shame that entrance to the castle was not possible-reopening in April 2018.Very helpful staff throughout the estate. Worth a quick visit on the way up or down Goatfell.

Gardens were marvellous, sadly the Castle was closed for repairs, disappointing . The gardens are mature and lead down to the seaside. Wonderful exotic tree ferns, a huge Chilean beech and a formal walled garden with many interesting flowers , and there are also some...More

The castle is currently closed for safety work but the surrounding gardens, woodlands and walks are beautiful. Plenty for all ages. The cafe has lovely cakes!! Highly recommended. Hope to return one day when the castle itself is open

When we visited the castle was closed but we could have easily spent all day in the gardens. There is a nice tea room and a plant sale area. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are some fantastic plants and trees and the flowers...More

yes on leads - no problem.
Hi is their parking available as I am disabled but do not require wheelchair access, Aware that we are on holiday last week in March 2016 and castle not open to visitors but would like to know if gardens and walking round grounds is allowed. Total cost for 2 senior citizens if access is permissible.

Yes there is plenty of free parking in which you can also walk about grounds. I believe to walk in the gardens and castle grounds there would be a fee but not sure how much for senior citizens.
