Once that’s done you’ll be able to experience the KnittingTours website perfectly.
Glamis Castle has been the ancestral seat to the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1372, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and birthplace of HRH The Princess Margaret.
Glamis Castle is open daily to the public from March 30th – October 31st. Enjoy our guided tours where their expert guides will help you follow in the footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots, James V, Bonnie Dundee, the Old Jacobite Pretender to the throne James VIII, the ill-fated Janet Douglas and of course tell the story of the bitter-sweet life of Mary Eleanor Bowes.
See the extensive gardens and grounds flourish and change throughout our open season. Springtime is perhaps the most dramatic season when the mile long avenue is stunningly lined with thousands of daffodils. The Gift Shop features a large variety of souvenirs, clothing, jewellery and accessories – alongside an interesting range of Scottish produce, selected whiskies, beers, wines and spirits there is sure to be a great gift for every occasion.
Exploring Glamis Castle can be thirsty work, so the Victorian Kitchen Restaurant is open for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. Your food is prepared by the award winning caterers, Wilde Thyme. Fall in love with Glamis Castle and purchase a Friends of Glamis Annual Pass. With the Friends of Glamis Members, enjoy unlimited access to the Castle and Grounds throughout the open season (including guided tours of the Castle). Other benefits of being a Friend of Glamis are 10% off all purchases in the Gift Shop and Restaurant and special invitation days.
