Glamis Castle is set in the heart of the Angus Glens. Family home of the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1372. It was the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and the birthplace of Her Royal Highness The Princess Margaret.
The castle is the legendary setting of Shakespeare's most famous tragedy, "Macbeth". The magnificent rooms offer a wide range of historic paintings, furniture, porcelain and tapestries. Also on view are the Royal apartments used by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and King George VI.
The grounds of Glamis Castle were landscaped about 1800 to a design influenced by the celebrated landscape gardner, Lancelot (Capability) Brown. Features also include Italian Garden, Nature Trail, Pinetum and walled garden.
The Estate extends to 13,500 acres (5,400 hectares) of land. This comprises farmland, hill grazing and moorland, amenity woodland, commercial woodland, the Castle and its policies, and much of Glamis Village.
We welcome enquiries for filming, corporate and private events and can customise an event to suit your requirements - all in one of Scotland's most historic settings. Corporate entertaining can be combined with shooting on the Estate.
