Glamis Castle

Glamis Castle, Angus, Scotland


Glamis Castle Gardens will be open to vistors from 29 June 2020. The Castle remains closed at present. Tickets for the gardens must be booked in advance.

Glamis Castle has been the ancestral seat to the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1372, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and birthplace of HRH The Princess Margaret.

Our expert guides will help you follow in the footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots, James V, Bonnie Dundee, the Old Jacobite Pretender to the throne James VIII, the ill-fated Janet Douglas and of course tell the story of the bitter-sweet life of Mary Eleanor Bowes.

Set in the magnificent original Victorian kitchen space, Glamis Castle Kitchen is open for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. Freshly prepared, the tempting fare offers the best of seasonal produce and locally sourced ingredients, some of it coming from the Estate’s own farms and gardens.
