"The cottage is lovely, the flowers and welcome tray were an unexpected bonus - "Thank-you"!

We have visited loads of nice places including the Royal Yacht Brittannia, Perth Highland Games,The International Horse Show at Blair Castle , not to mention glass factory, whiskey distilleries, the list goes on, two weeks is not long enough! We hope to return, as due to the lovely weather, we have missed out on the open fire. However, the bed is as fantastic as people have said before."

Other Places of Interest

Located in Scotland near the village of Glamis, 5 miles west of Forfar, Glamis Castle resides. One of the things that this Scottish Castle is most famous for is that Glamis was the setting for Shakespear's "Macbeth".

Among the oldest and most haunting parts of the castle is Duncan's Hall, which commemorates the slaying of King Duncan by Macbeth. Although the actual killing took place near Elgin, this is the traditional Shakespearean scene of the crime.

Glamis is the ancestral home of the Lyon, now Bowes-lyon family. At the head are the Earls of Strathmore, who, though ennobled three times before, became Scottish Earls in 1677 and UK Earls only in 1937, when Lady Elizabeth Bowes Lyon, Duchess of York, became Queen of England, later Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother who's childhood home was Glamis.

Princess Margaret was born at Glamis and it also has the room where King Malcolm of Scotland died after being wounded in battle. The Castle was visited by Mary Queen of Scots on 22nd August, 1562. The famous secret chamber is said to be known only to the Laird and his heir. The Castle has many legends and secrets surrounding it.

Glamis Castle is open to the public usually from 10.30 a.m.-5.30 p.m. (last admission 4.45 p.m.) from Saturday, 1st April, to Monday, 30th October, 1995 (all days inclusive).
