About this place

Magnificent turreted castle with a Playful Garden and amazing springtime daffodil displays

  • Step back in time on a guided tour to the castle’s glory days, when the Brodie family were one of Scotland’s most prominent families.
  • Explore the Playful Garden, home to a fascinating menagerie of characters inspired by the castle’s quirky and colourful history, including Scotland’s biggest bunny sculpture.
  • Visit in spring when the grounds are carpeted with over 100 varieties of daffodil.

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

Take a guided tour to see how changing times have altered the castle’s shape and purpose. The castle houses a magnificent collection of furniture, ceramics and artwork, including works by 17th-century Dutch masters. It also boasts an impressive library containing over 6,000 volumes.

The Playful Garden at Brodie Castle is full of excitement for all the family. Located near to the castle, it explores the Brodie family history in a novel and fun-filled way.
