Fine art, antique furniture and centuries of history make this huge apartment a splendid place to celebrate family occasions or spoil your visiting guests. The Late Ninian Brodie lived here until 2003, and it has all the comfort of a luxury modern home, while being spread across three floors of magnificent turreted castle.
14 guests can stay in the apartment, and when not enjoying the grand dining room or games room, can play croquet in the castle grounds or wander through acres of nature trails, spotting swans, ducks and red squirrels. There is no better place to experience the life of a contemporary Laird.

About Brodie Castle
The imposing turrets of Brodie Castle stand between Nairn and Forres, close to the beaches of the Moray Firth. The castle dates from the mid-16th century, and is filled with Dutch, English and early 20th-century art.
Famous for its extravagant display of daffodils in the spring, the extensive grounds also offer trails, bird hides and an adventure playground.
About the area
Forres is the closest town, and also one of Scotland's oldest, having been a Royal Burgh since 1140. There are plenty of shops on offer for stocking up.
Brodie Castle is also an excellent base for exploring the Cairngorm mountains, the Black Isle and the Moray Firth, Loch Ness and Glen Affric.
Things to do
- The Moray Firth has stunning beaches. There are 12 dolphin and wildlife watching boats operating all around the area, the closest being at Findhorn. Chanonry Point, near Fortrose; the dolphin watching centres at Kessock Bridge and Spey Bay, are all worthwhile days out.
- There is no shortage of golf courses in the area, with at least 19 courses within an hours drive from Forres. Forrres's own course, Muiryshade has in the past hosted the Scottish Professional Championship, the Northern Open and the Scottish Young Professional Championship.
- For those looking for something a bit different, Brodie staff are delighted to help you arrange sailing, shooting or fishing.
- Follow the world famous Malt Whisky Trail through Speyside which includes 7 working distilleries, a cooperage and a historic distillery. Forres is home to two of these Distilleries, the Benromach and the Dallas Dhu.
- At Brodie, you'll be staying just half-an hour's drive from the battlefield at Culloden. Discover the story behind the Jacobite uprising and the last battle to be fought on Scottish soil.
Brodie Castle is off the A96, 4½ miles west of Forres and 24 miles east of Inverness.
