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).

Additionally, Shakespeare used Glamis as a fit setting for the grim tragedy of Macbeth, the Thane of Glamis.

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.
