  • We visited Glamis Castle on a rainy day but we forgot we passed the entrance and saw the castle in the distance It lay there with its beautiful towers and wings Tour is a must even if it was a little hard to hear everything that was said to the castle that has been a home and meeting place for Lyon & Bowes has many furniture, furnishings remain and, not least, biographies of important men and women Interesting chapel with paintings on the ceilings and walls good soup and Espresso Large souvenir shop next time we'll see the Park among the best castles we saw in Scotland

  • One of the many beautiful castles in Scotland. It's not too big but it is very well looked after. The surrounding park is well worth a walk. I would also recommend the tour. Sometimes the inhabitants are there as they have closed off a wing of the castle which is private. A really nice day out, there is a small cafe with very high quality food there expect to pay for it though.
  • Influential history. Such beautiful architecture and surroundings. You can see why the royal family enjoy spending their time here! The staff and tour guides are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. A great place to visit and learn some of the history of the United Kingdom.
  • Beautiful castle both inside and outside. Excellent guide who gave lots of information without endless figures. Very good shop too and saw nice kids play area useful for families.
  • The castle is really huge, inside a even bigger garden and forest.. The tour was really interesting. The only con is that is not possible to have photos inside. The gardens and forest are big and interesting, but because some "natural" problems the gardens were to at their best
  • Really good and interesting and good tourist centre with a mini cinema
