Lord and Lady Dalhousie extend a warm welcome to their home Brechin Castle at the ancient city of Brechin in the beautiful County of Angus in North East Scotland. Brechin Castle and the spectacular gardens are open to the public in May/June each year. Brechin Castle stands proud on a massive bluff of rocks above the River Southesk on the site of a much older fortress belonging to the Scottish kings. The present house was last reconstructed in the early 1700's and incorporates parts of the original Castle dating back to the 13th Century.
