Ghosts and great kings in Glamis

Steeped in Shakespearean tales and myths of Scottish grotesques, mighty Glamis Castle is what commands the countryside of Angus. Its turrets, keeps, and lichen-spotted stone walls stand like something out of Harry Potter. Its gilded hallways and grand court rooms have been trodden by kings and queens. Tales of ghosts are uttered in whispers around its grounds, and local folk museums tell enthralling stories of the people who've lived in its shadow. Book Glamis vacation rentals today to experience the wonder for yourself.

Glamis is the gateway to Angus country

Aside from its majestic castle, bucolic Glamis also offers a fine gateway to the verdant backcountry of east Scotland. You won't have to go far to find winding walking routes that wiggle through the cattle farms and villages, past fire-crackling pubs and down leafy glens. To see the region in another way, you could always saddle up and hit the hills on horseback courtesy of local stables, or rev the engines and take to the roads for a scenic drive or camping excursion into the foothills of the Grampians.

Exploring Glamis Castle

All trips to this historic village should include a jaunt to Glamis Castle. It's the great wonder of the Angus lowlands, and comes steeped in mythical history and spine-tingling tales of Scottish ghosts. You'll find it in a series of manicured flower gardens just north of Glamis itself, hosting dedicated guides who run regular walking tours of the whole building throughout the summer _ expect stories of Macbeth and murdered kings. Also, don't miss the Glamis Folk Museum, where the reconstructions of local 19th-century life offer true historical immersion.

Wrap up for winter or enjoy summer in Glamis

Glamis Castle is open to visitors between the months of April and October, which means it's imperative to book those Glamis vacation rentals between the early spring and late fall if you're coming to see the Gothic treasures and mysterious court rooms of that. If you're not set on visiting the site, then you can enjoy much lower room rates in the local accommodations, along with visions of the Grampians and Cairngorms when the Scottish snows hit in winter.

Glamis on the cusp of the Central Lowlands

Quaint little Glamis sits right on the edge of the Scottish Central Lowlands. Just shy of 20 miles from the icy rollers of the North Sea, the town also looks northwards towards the rising peaks of the Grampian Mountains _ that's where you'll be able to explore the bald ridges and lochs of the world-famous Cairngorms National Park. Closer to the door of your Glamis vacation rentals are the Angus Glens though, which unfold with verdant agricultural fields and cattle farms _ the source of Scotland's iconic Angus beef.
