Brodie Illuminated 2022

A truly magical treat lies in store at National Trust for Scotland’s Brodie Castle this autumn when the magnificent stronghold stages its much-anticipated after-dark light show. Brodie Illuminated will see the conservation charity’s famous Morayshire property transformed into a colourful wonderland which is sure to dazzle and delight all ages.

Now in its third year and wowing thousands of visitors each autumn, Brodie Illuminated kicked off on 2 November and features a programme of dramatic light shows around the castle estate, bathing its trees, shrubs, and plants in beautiful illuminations.

Visitors can enjoy a spectacular nighttime walk through the grounds and see the turreted 16th century castle lit up as if from a fairy tale. This year's tours feature a completely new route, taking in the castle's legendary Playful Garden which is home to characters including a giant rabbit and unicorns, as well as the shrubbery and wider estate.

The rich and fascinating history of the Brodie clan and castle will also be brought to light through tales in celebration of Scotland's Year of Stories 2022.

Brodie Illuminated 2022 runs over four evenings each week (Wednesday to Saturday) until Saturday 26 November, from 5pm to 9pm.

Pamela Hill, Operations Manager at Brodie Castle, said: "This year we have created a completely fresh route, with lots of new experiences to engage our visitors and to immerse themselves in, so whether they're a returning visitor or coming along for the first time, they won't be disappointed.

"Brodie Illuminated is a highly popular event here which really seems to capture people's imaginations. Come along for an evening of enchantment, wonder and a spectacle of colour! A big Brodie welcome awaits."
