Amazing Castle! Unfortunately, we was disappointed because only few rooms was open to be visited....the rest of 95% from this Castle was close for tourists. Surrounded of this, huge natural park, with few animals, birds,secular trees. Very beautiful and a lot of peace combined with birds singing...all this transfer you in other Universe.
Our visit to Glamis Castle was a very pleasant surprise to us. We had been in Dundee for over a week without knowing about the place, until the owner of our AirBnB told us about it. The exteriors of the place were beautiful already. The interiors offered a lot of interesting history thanks to the well informed tour guide. If you're not in a hurry, also take your time to explore the vast garden areas around the garden.
