This category A listed building is as storied as they come: King Malcolm II was murdered here, Shakespeare's Macbeth lived here (although the historical Macbeth didn't), the Queen Mother grew up here and Princess Margaret was born here. For years, the castle was rumoured to contain a secret chamber inhabited by a hideously deformed monster who happened to be the castle's true owner; in the present, the owner is the non-deformed Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, and the family runs the place as a tourist attraction and event venue.
Dundee station is about 12 miles away, and the A90 and A94 offer road access.
