This 5 star visitor attraction has been the ancestral home of the Earls of Strathmore for over 600 years. The guided tours of the castle and gardens are only one small element in all that can be enjoyed at Glamis. The castle itself holds particular relevance as it is the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth as well as the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret. It also provides the setting for Shakespeare’s famous work Macbeth.

 
For those worried that there will be too much history and not enough going on, don’t fret as Glamis is also the site for numerous events throughout the year. The transport extravaganza is of particular interest to those interested in motor vehicles of all kinds. The Prom provides the highlight of the year with live music performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Lastly for those looking for something a bit more Scottish and unique the Strathmore Highland Games are also held on site at Glamis. Make sure to check out the caber tossing and tug o’war competitions. For those looking to participate you can even get involved in the track and field events. At the end of the competition sit back and relax and enjoy some traditional bag-piping.
 
Glamis definitely has something for everyone throughout the year, to avoid disappointment check the calendar for upcoming events
