Brodick Castle, Garden & Country Park
About the property
Brodick Castle and Country Park is unique in being the only island country park in Britain. The Castle offers 600 years of history, a fabulous collection of valuable artefacts, and stunning views over Brodick Bay to the Ayrshire Coast. The Castle Gardens provide an unrivalled experience from the formal walled garden to its woodland walks. Brodick holds three national collections of rhododendron that flower in almost every month of the year. The Park extends from seashore to mountain top with over ten miles of way-marked trails and abundant wildlife. With its backdrop of mountain peaks, its terraced lawns and luxuriant gardens, Brodick Castle and Country Park is the very image of a Victorian ‘Highland’ estate.
* Goatfell is part of the estate and is the highest peak on Arran
* Dramatic gorges with water-carved shapes in the rocks
