Glamis Castle has been the ancestral seat to the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1372, inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and birthplace of HRH The Princess Margaret.

Its Walled Garden features fruits, vegetables, a fun grass maze, Monet style fountains and a variety of fragrant flowers. Its Italian Garden, laid out around 1910 by the Queen Mother’s mother, is bounded by yew hedges and includes a raised terrace and fan-shaped parterres of formal beds separated by gravel walks.

 

Other features include pleached alleys of beech, a stone fountain and ornamental gates which commemorate the HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s 80th birthday.
