Glamis Castle

Between St Andrews and Aberdeen, Scotland, lies Glamis Castle. It was originally constructed in eleventh century as a hunting lodge. The castle was initially built in the 1300s, by the current building was refurbished about 300 years ago.


More recently, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, resided here.?Queen Elizabeth spent her childhood summers st Glamis, and Princess Margaret was burn here.

As us the case with many castles, the surrounding grounds are beautiful gardens. Shakespeare reportedly used Glamis Castle as his inspiration for the murder of King Duncan by Macbeth.

The surrounding grounds include a Macbeth Sculpture Garden.  A large section of the remaining gardens were closed today for a Scottish Arts Festival.. But we saw enough to see the Spector of this beautiful estate. A really nice find on our way north to catch our car ferry in Aberdeen tomorrow
