Visited Glamis Castle just after new year. Interesting guided tour. Lovely grounds for which there was no charge. Hope to go back in summer to explore the grounds further. Friendly, helpful staff and restaurant food was good

“Worth the visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

The Glamis Castle was a nice surprise! It is a medieval castle, not far away from St. Andrews or Aberdeen.

We took a guided tour, which was amazing and worth taking!!! We learned a lot about the castle and about the life back in that time. Also, we heard some tales from our guide!

I had some mobility restrictions, and I do not recommend the visit for those who cannot go through lots of stairs. I had to do everything very slow, and probably I delayed a bit the tour, but everyone was helpfull, kind and our guide also helped me to go through the entire tour.

It is worth mention that there are no wheelchair access.

“Great Grounds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Nice restaurant and good place to visit but you only get to see a small protion of the property. A bit pricy.
