Glamis Castle Gardens

Glamis Castle, birthplace of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
Glamis Castle

It’s been about five years since we last visited Glamis Castle;  it was a chill November day and we had got lost trying to find Broughty Ferry (don’t ask!) and so we ended up at Glamis instead.  It turned out to be a fortuitous mistake as we just loved our tour of the Castle and our lunch in their coffee shop.  Scottish November days, though, get dark very early and we didn’t have time to visit the gardens.

We had the chance to visit the castle recently;  because time was short, we decided just to explore the gardens – we were so glad that we did because we discovered just how amazing and accessible they are.  The walks are well organised and flat, so if you’re not very fit, they are a great way to get some exercise.  We explored the walled garden, the pinetum, the Italian garden and some of the magnificent lawned areas;  all very impressive.

Hopefully we’ll be back soon to explore some more of this historical castle.
