We went to visit this castle with my granddaughter (7 years old). We had the most wonderful guide than I met in all countries (and I'm an historian!). My granddaughter was fascinated. Well done to all the team in this castle. We learned so much.

For those genuinely interested in Scottish/British history, it is well worth the visit. For those not, save your time and money! Our tour guide was full of knowledge and took very good care of us!

I agree, join National Trust, I pay £4 per month for a single membership, you could join and then cancel, if you find you do not use it. But I find it encourages you to go on adventures you might not go on otherwise!

Brodie Castle is currently trialling non-guided tours. Please call ahead first to ensure you can book for this as opposed to the guided tour, if this is your preference.

Hi, I'm not sure about the times for the Tours, we called the castle before arriving and didn't do a tour as I am in a wheelchair and can walk a little but very slowly.
