  • Like so many historic sites, Brodie castle is closed this year due to Covid-19. However, the grounds and the 'Playful garden' are open. Intrigued by the name, we enquired what the 'Playful garden...  more »

  • Whilst we did not include, on this visit, a tour of the interior of the castle we spent a lovely afternoon wandering in the splendid well kept gardens and pathways, stopping at the delightful castle cafe. Very tasted fresh scones and cakes. Ventured down to the lake and woodland walks for a finish to our short visit.
  • Brodie Castle is stunning. The guides are great and very eager to share their knowledge of the castle and the Brodie family. This castle is special because it I'd exactly as the last Brodie of Brodie left it. You feel as if you could just move right in!
  • Loved it. Be sure to look for the Lego people in each room. Best gift shop of any of the castles in the area as it had more unique products. Lovely garden too.
  • We had a short visit walked the grounds which are beautifully looked after. Stopped at the cafe for a scone and cuppa. Home made scones were fab wish more NT cafes baked their own scones as they used to. The waitress was very friendly and gave us some tips for other places to visit.
  • Splendid day here. Great educational tour of the rooms and a little bit of exploration around the gardens. Steeped in history - as one would expect, this handsome Castle has many mysterious stories to tell. Well worth a visit.
