Glamis Castle


  • Within 1 Hour of the City
  • Outside the City

A spectacular landmark with all the history and heritage you could possibly want, Glamis Castle is set amid some wonderfully eye-catching Angus countryside.

It offers country sports, manicured gardens, self-catering accommodation, an elegant restaurant and a well-stocked gift shop.

Glamis Castle has been the ancestral seat to the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1732, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and birthplace of HRH The Princess Margaret.

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.

Glamis castle is a 25 minute drive from Dundee City centre. Combine a visit to Ogilvy Vodka Distillery on the way.
