About this place

Acres of gentle Moray countryside surround Brodie Castle, ancestral home of the Brodie clan for over 400 years, although their family seat has been here since the 12th century.

This rose-coloured, turreted castle stands on land confirmed to the Brodies by Robert the Bruce. See how changing times altered the castle's shape and purpose. The impenetrable 16th-century guard chamber is flanked on one side by a cosy 17th-century wing and on the other by a sprawling Victorian extension.

The castle houses a magnificent collection of furniture, ceramics and artwork, including works by 17th-century Dutch masters and 20th-century Scottish Colourists. It also boasts an impressive library containing over 6,000 volumes.

In 2018 we will be launching our newest addition, the Playful Garden at Brodie Castle, which promises to be full of excitement for all the family. Located near to the castle, the Playful Garden will explore the Brodie family history in a novel and fun-filled way.
