Legends and myths have grown around the castle. King Malcolm II was said to have been murdered there in the 11th century. Lady Janet Douglas, widow of Lord Glamis, was burned at the stake as a witch in 1540 by James V. There is said to be a secret room where a nobleman played cards with the devil himself.
Glamis today looks more a French Chateau than a medieval fortress because it was extensively restored in the 17th and 18th centuries.
It was the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother (she being the youngest daughter of the 14th Earl) and Her Royal Highness The Princess Margaret was born there in 1930.
The restaurant is situated in the magnificent Victorian kitchens with their 19th century ovens, stoves and copper pans carefully restored. As a working kitchen this area would have been a hive of activity in years gone by and visitors can still view the 'Service Bells' which would have been monitored by the sevants in the kitchen. Fresh local produce is on offer including: Arbroath Smokie Pate, Forfar Bridies and Strathmore Berries.
