Glamis Travel Guide and Information.

Glamis

Just a wee village in Central Angus, Glamis grew up to serve the needs of Glamis Castle. This 17th century castle was the childhood home of the late Queen Mother and the birth place of Princess Margaret. Looking like something straight out of a fairy tale book with its towers, turrets and spires, Glamis Castle is said to be the most haunted in Scotland.

No visit to Glamis is complete without stopping at the Angus Folk Museum. An absolute delight to see, the collection is housed in a row of 18th century stone cottages. Exhibits detail the former day-to-day lives of people who lived in Glamis and the surrounding countryside. See the implements and tools people here once used to weave, make butter, spin wool, plough and harvest the fields.

The Glamis Mercat Cross is still plainly visible in the village. Keep a look out for the Pictish Stone here which you'll see opposite Glamis Church in the Manse House Garden. The Glamis stone depicts a Celtic cross on one side and detailed carvings of a salmon and a serpent on the other.
