In Scotland adventure and walking holidays go together so well! Celebrating nature in a way like this is not uncommon for the Spring time. Walking holidays in Scotland are so popular, it’s no surprise with lots of events happening all around the highlands.
Each Spring, the grounds of Brodie Castle are carpeted with this beautiful, bright flower and include a National Collection of over 110 different cultivars bred at the property by a former laird.
Other Spring flowers that appear are Dog’s Tooth Violet and Rhododendrons. On these days, there are tours of the castle grounds in which you can discover more about this collection of flowers and support Scotland’s Gardens.
This is an annual festival in Scotland and this year, it spans across Saturday 23rd April – Sunday 24th April and has a £3 entry fee.
Getting to Brodie Castle
Brodie Castle is just 24 miles east of Inverness and off A96 4½ miles west of Forres.
What other attractions are there at Brodie Castle?
Brodie Castle has a range of antique furniture, paintings and ceramics from generations of Clan Brodie.
You can explore the rooms, passageways and towers of Brodie Castle which have all been restored to emulate what everyday life was like for one of Scotland’s oldest and most celebrated clans.
