Family home to the Queen Mother and ancestral home to the Countess of Strathmore and family. It is open to the public throughout the summer. Won Best Attraction in the UK 2015!
Glamis has been the family home of the Earls of Strathmore since 1372 (!) when Sir John Lyon was granted the thaneage by King Robert II (son of Robert the Bruce). In 1376 Sir John married the King's daughter and since then Glamis has been visited and lived in by many members of the Scottish and British Royal Families. The present Queen's mother was born at the Castle.
You can only visit a small part of the castle, but it is interesting and well worth and seeing, and let's face it: it is amazing that one family has been living in the same house for such a long time.
