Owner description: A clan chief's treasure house, generations of Clan Brodie have lived and died within Brodie Castle. On the tour can be seen a letter from Robert the Bruce, the coronation robe worn by Queen Adelaide in 1831, antique furniture and ceramics and an extensive art collection, including three works by the Scottish Colourists. This 16th-century castle is a slice of Scottish history not to be missed. There's plenty to discover outside the castle too. The 71 hectare estate has landscaped gardens, a large pond, a walled garden, a woodland walk, an adventure playground and a nature trail with observation hides for watching wildlife.

“Excellent guides”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

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 to members.

“A great place to take friends”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

As a National Trust member i was able to enjoy this facility for free but it is a national treasure and has lots of interesting things to see. The guide was excellent and the tea and scones before the tour were excellent too

“Beautiful castle!!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Visited Brodie castle as I'm a member of the NTS and this castle is outstanding. You can only go around with a guided tour but don't let that put you off as you can get close and personal with the Brodie family's treasures. The tour took just over an hour and was packed with history and facts. I would recommend to visit this castle.
