Description

Gardens, woodland, waterfalls and a castle packed with treasures make this a must-visit on Arran

  • Visit this grand baronial castle and estate for the perfect family day out on the Isle of Arran.
  • Enjoy a new, interactive visitor experience in the castle, including a Victorian arcade, mood lighting and evocative sounds, as you discover a brilliant collection of period furniture, silverware, porcelain, paintings and sporting trophies.
  • Wander through the formal gardens on the Silver Garden Trail and Plant Hunters’ Walk, or venture further to discover ponds, waterfalls and woodland trails, where you can spot red squirrels.
  • Run, climb and swing through our Isle Be Wild adventure play area or look for fairies on our new Fairies and Legends Trail.
  • Explore Britain’s only island country park, from the seashore to the mountain top.

Teeming with history and surrounded by mountains, Brodick is every inch the quintessential island castle. The present building was fashioned in 1844, but the seat dates back centuries to when its strategic position overlooking the Firth of Clyde made Brodick a fortress to be reckoned with. The castle was the ancient seat of the Dukes of Hamilton and contains a fabulous collection of valuable artefacts.

Indoors, dark wood, heavy Victorian colours and sporting trophies hark back to an age of aristocratic leisure and luxury. After two years of extensive works, the castle has reopened with an exciting new visitor experience, focusing on the fascinating stories of the people who lived here, and with interactive activities to bring the building to life.

Outdoors you’ll find our fantastic Isle Be Wild adventure play park as well as our new Silver Garden. The formal gardens, woodland, waterfalls, bathing pools and bold rhododendrons conjure up an island charm that will beguile children and adults alike.
