Brodick Castle History

From the entrance hall, with 87 stags heads, one reaches the Duchess’s dressing room, bedroom and boudoir, all sumptuously furnished.

A small staircase reaches Bruce’s room, which is vaulted and was once used as a prison. There are many horseracing mementos in the castle, as well as silver, porcelain and artwork from the Hamilton, Beckford and Rochford collections.

The Crown built Brodick, but the castle passed to the Hamiltons in 1503. They remained owners, as Earls of Arran and Dukes of Hamilton, until the death of Mary, Duchess of Montrose, heiress of the 12th Duke of Hamilton.

Brodick Castle Facts

The National Trust for Scotland took the castle over in 1958. The 6,603 acre Goatfell estate is also owned by the Trust.

Brodick Castle is in the property of the National Trust of Scotland and it is open for visits.
