Cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Teeming with history and surrounded by mountains, Brodick is every inch the quintessential island castle. Explore the castle during our new self-guided visitor experience, which focuses on the fascinating stories of the people who lived here.
There are several interactive activities, including our Victorian arcade where you can race a horse on our roll-a-derby or play other traditional Victorian games. These activities, combined with special lighting, audio and costumed interpreters, help bring the castle 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.
From the gardens you can enjoy spectacular views over Brodick Bay to the Ayrshire coast. The country park has over 10 miles of waymarked trails and abundant wildlife. Don’t miss a visit to the countryside centre, where you can often get brilliant views of red squirrels.
Dramatically set against the backdrop of Goat Fell Mountain, on the Isle of Arran, the grand castle has stunning views over Brodick Bay to the Firth of Clyde. The grounds and surroundings are worthy of a visit alone – from the landscaped gardens to the woodland trails, there’s plenty to explore outdoors in Britain’s only island country park.
