Glamis Castle, Angus

Glamis Castle, Angus, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on Glamis Castle. This is a popular tourist attraction which is easily accessible from Edinburgh, St Andrews and central Scotland.

Glamis Castle has been the home of the Earls of Strathmore since 1372. The castle is perhaps best known for its links with the British Royal Family, in particular the late Queen Mother (1900-2002).

Regular tours of the castle last about 50 minutes and take visitors through the Victorian Dining Room, Medieval Crypt, 17th century Drawing Room, Chapel, Billiard Room and the Royal Apartments. Other facilities and attractions at Glamis include:

  • Italian Garden
  • Nature Trail
  • Garden Walks
  • Highland Cattle
  • Exhibitions
  • Shopping
  • Food and Drink
