Description

Volunteers are vital to Brodie Castle. Helping inside the Castle or outside in the grounds and gardens -- volunteers are hugely important in enriching the visitor experience-- from the tea room to the shop to the gardens to the wonderful rooms inside the Castle, volunteers have a part to play.

The castle has been restored to reveal what everyday life was like for the Brodie laird and his family. The rooms feature the finest antique furniture, works of art and irreplaceable ceramics collected by generations of Brodies.

Outside, there are beautifully landscaped gardens with a large pond, a woodland walk, an adventure playground and a nature trail with hides for watching wildlife, including red squirrels and woodpeckers. There is also a renowned and historically important daffodil collection.

Acres of gentle Moray countryside surround Brodie Castle, ancestral home of the Brodie clan for over 400 years. although their family seat has been here since the 12th century.
