Brimming with history and charm, Glamis is one of most visited castles in Scotland and certainly one of the most grand. The ancestral home of the Earls of Strathmore, it is also the setting for Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Duncan’s Hall commemorates the killing of King Duncan by Macbeth. This was also the childhood home of the Queen Mother. Experienced guides are available for tours – highlights include the majestic Victorian dining room, which was designed in the mid 19th century. The sublime Italian garden, which is bounded by yew hedges, was created by Countess Cecilia, the Queen’s grandmother, in 1910.
