The imposing turrets of Brodie Castle stand between Nairn and Forres, close to the beaches of the Moray Firth. The castle dates from the mid-16th century, and is filled with Dutch, English and early 20th-century art. Famous for its extravagant display of daffodils in the spring, the extensive grounds also offer trails, bird hides and an adventure playground.
Forres is the closest town, and also one of Scotland's oldest, having been a Royal Burgh since 1140. There are plenty of shops on offer for stocking up.
Brodie Castle is also an excellent base for exploring the Cairngorm mountains, the Black Isle and the Moray Firth, Loch Ness and Glen Affric.
