Sustaining Glamis 2024 Exhibition

16 March 2024, 10:00 am - 31 October 2024, 4:00 pm

Free – £17.50
Glamis Castle

Glamis Castle is more than a family home and historic residence. The castle and village are the focus of a traditional rural estate which continues to encourage the development of a thriving rural community today.

Historically, the castle has been largely self-sufficient, with fruit and vegetables grown in the kitchen garden, as well as game, livestock, farming, and forestry on the estate. Staff and tradespeople have played a key role in sustaining the residents of Glamis from servants, cooks, gardeners, game keepers and foresters, to local farmers and merchants.

There are many interwoven strands involved in sustaining Glamis Castle and its estate from the past to the present, focusing not just on survival, but also quality of life, nature, and conservation. Further information and exhibits, including 17th century medicinal and culinary Recipes, Cellar Books, Game Books, lists of old trees, tradespeople’s accounts, and original 18th century clothing, can be found in the Coach House Café.
