If you are followers of this blog you will already know that I love castles, especially those that are surrounded by spectacular natural environments like the one I bring you today. The Glamis castle It is considered the most enchanted of all those in Scotland and it is surrounded by multiple legends about everything that happened between its walls centuries ago. It is in the town of Glamis and has its origin in the early 15th century, although a hunting lodge already existed in the 11th century, which they say is what gave rise to the castle.
Between his many legends You can find some romantic and other terrifying, although they are just that, legends, and it is very difficult to know if they really are things that happened. It is said that there is a monster that lives inside it and also that there is a mysterious window that can be seen from the outside but that does not really correspond to any of the rooms or corridors of the castle.
Another legend says that one of the Earls of Strathmore He was playing cards with some relatives on Saturday night (important since when midnight was Sunday, they could no longer play) and that when the time approached the count began to shout saying that before finishing his game he preferred to condemn himself and risk dying. From that day on, both the count and his friends were eternally condemned to continue the game in one of the castle's rooms.
One of the most famous parts of the castle is Duncan’s Hall, where it is said that Macbeth King Duncan was assassinated, although as reported in the play that murder occurred at Macbeth Castle in the also Scottish city of Inverness. Legends aside, the castle is surrounded by forests and gardens that will make your visit unforgettable.
