Scottish Castle Brodick is located on the island of Arran and is one of the oldest Scottish fortresses. Its history dates back to Viking times when the castle served as a defense against their attacks. Fort was built by the English Duke of Hamilton, and over the centuries, has been rebuilt into a castle. In 1957, the last heir of Hamilton’s gave up Brodick Castle and such the seat opened to the public.
In addition to the large art collection, the castle is interesting also for the world-famous collection of rhododendrons. It is just at the sea and includes wonderful gardens with a great view of surrounding hills and majestic mountain of Goatfell.
