Broughty Castle Museum


Castle Approach, Broughty Ferry, Angus, DD5 2TF

    Discover the people, environment, history and wildlife of Broughty Ferry in this amazing 15th century coastal fort, which houses a fascinating museum. Enjoy stunning views of Broughty Beach and the Tay estuary.

    This 15th century coastal fort has faced many battles and sieges, and was rebuilt in the 19th century as part of the River Tay's coastal defence system.

    It now houses a fascinating museum featuring displays on the life and times of Broughty Ferry, its people, the environment and the wildlife that lives close by.

    Don't miss the Orchar Gallery, featuring a selection of paintings from the amazing Orchar Collection. Enjoy the spectacular views over the River Tay from the observation post. You may even be able to spot a dolphin or two. 

    Refreshments and a gift shop are available. Tourist information is also available at the Neighbourhood Information Point. Admission is free.

    As a fortified and listed building, Broughty Castle has restricted access for people whose mobility is limited. Due to the spiral staircase in the castle, access for wheelchair users is not possible.
