Brodie Castle (NTS)

Set in parkland, Brodie Castle is old but the family association with the area is even older. The Brodies were first endowed with their lands by Malcolm IV in 1160 and a Thane of Brodie is recorded in the reign of Alexander III.

Set in parkland, Brodie Castle is old but the family association with the area is even older. The Brodies were first endowed with their lands by Malcolm IV in 1160 and a Thane of Brodie is recorded in the reign of Alexander III. The castle was damaged in 1645 during the Montrose campaigns. The oldest part is 16th-century with additions made in the 17th and 19th centuries. The house contains fine French furniture, English, Continental and Chinese porcelain, and a major collection of paintings ranging from 17th-century Dutch to 18th and early 19th-century English watercolours and Scottish Colourists. The house and its collections demonstrate an impressive continuity bearing witness to Brodie's long history. A woodland walk by a large pond gives access to wildlife observation hides. In springtime the grounds are carpeted with many varieties of daffodils for which Brodie Castle is rightly famous. Shop and Tearoom. Image Credit ©  National Trust - Brodie Castle.
