 Castles of Scotland - Brodie Castle






Location
near Forres, Moray, Scotland

Description
Brodie Castle is located about 5 miles west of Forres in the Moray region of Scotland. The original castle was a z-plan design built in 1567 by Clan Brodie. It was destroyed by fire in 1645, but rebuilt by William Burn in the style of a fortified house. It has a very well preserved central keep with two 5-storey towers on opposite corners. The building is lime-harled with ornate corbelled battlements. The interior of the castle is well preserved, with fine antique furniture, oriental artifacts and painted ceilings. Today the castle and grounds are owned by the National Trust for Scotland and open to tourists throughout the summer months. The castle may be hired for weddings and indoor or outdoor events. An ancient Pictish monument known as Rodney's Stone can be seen in the castle grounds.

History
It was the home of Ninian Brodie of Brodie and family.
