Elgin is the county town of Moray Wikivoyage Icon in north-east Scotland, best known for its ruined cathedral which made it a "city". Together with nearby Lossiemouth Wikivoyage Icon it's the service town for two nearby RAF bases.

The "Elgin Marbles" have only the most tenuous connection with this place. It was the 7th Earl of Elgin who in the early 19th century removed (or looted or legally purchased or rescued from destruction, take your pick) many friezes and sculptures from the Acropolis in Athens - they're now in the British Museum. But the family residences were in Fife and elsewhere, and none of the Earls of Elgin lived here.

Castle/palace

Brodie Castle
Brodie Castle

Brodie Castle is a well-preserved Z plan castle located about 3 12 miles (5.5 kilometres) west of Forres Wikipedia Icon, in Moray, Scotland. The castle is a Category A listed building and the grounds are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.

The Brodie family

The original Z-plan castle was built in 1567 by Clan Brodie but was destroyed by fire in 1645 by Lewis Gordon of Clan Gordon, the 3rd Marquis of Huntly. In 1824, architect William Burn was commissioned to convert it into a large mansion house in the Scots Baronial style, but these additions were never completed and were later remodelled by James Wylson (c. 1845).

The Brodie family called the castle home until the early 21st century. It is widely accepted that the Brodies have been associated with the land on which the castle is built since around 1160, when it is believed that King Malcolm IV gave the land to the family.

Ninian Brodie of Brodie (The Brodie of Brodie), the castle's last resident member of the family, died in 2003. The former family wing is being[when? Wikipedia Icon] prepared for holiday letting.

The castle today

Architecturally, the castle has a very well-preserved 16th-century central keep with two 5-storey towers on opposing corners. The interior of the castle is also well preserved, containing fine antique furniture, oriental artifacts and painted ceilings, largely dating from the 17th–19th centuries.

Today the castle and surrounding policies, including a national daffodil collection, are owned by the National Trust for Scotland and are open to the public to visit throughout the year. The castle may be hired for weddings and indoor or outdoor events. An ancient Pictish monument known as Rodney's Stone Wikipedia Icon can be seen in the castle grounds.
