Scotland’s Glamis Castle is a great destination for those interested in architecture, history and myths.

The castle, which is famed for being the childhood home of the Queen Mother and the setting for Macbeth, is situated in the valley of Strathmore, five miles from Forfar and 12 miles from Dundee.

The grounds of the castle boast an Italian Garden, nature trail, pinetum and walled garden.

Groups are able to visit the castle all year round, although when it is closed to the public in winter, visits must be pre-booked.

Benefits for groups include free entry and meal vouchers for drivers and group leaders, coach parking and group menus in the restaurant.

Group rates are £8.75 adults, £8 seniors and £6.25 children.

A number of events are taking place at the castle this year, including The Glamis Gathering on May 20, the Strathmore Highland Games on June 10 and an open-air performance of Macbeth on August 25.
