16th century castle incorporating early work and including much later work. Now in care of NTS and open to public
The lands on which the castle stand have been in Brodie Clan possession since 1160. They have been in constant habitation of the house until 2003 when they moved out after some dispute with National Trust for Scotland. The house is now unihabited. The interior is well preserved and definately worth a visit. The spring display of daffodils are famous and remarkably extensive!
Description from National Trust of Scotland:
This imposing castle stands in rich Morayshire parkland. Dating from the 16th century, Brodie Castle has unusual plaster ceilings, a major art collection and tells the fascinating story of the Brodie family.
There is a woodland walk with a large pond and a nature trail with access to wildlife observation hides. In springtime the grounds are carpeted with many varieties of daffodils for which Brodie Castle is rightly famous.
