Broughty Castle sits imposingly at the mouth of the River Tay. Built in 1496 on a rocky promontory, it has faced many sieges and battles.

Today, it houses fascinating displays on the life and times of Broughty Ferry, its people, the environment and the wildlife that live close by.

The Castle has magnificent views over the river, and is only minutes away from Broughty Ferry Beach and Esplanade. A must-see attraction while visiting Broughty Ferry, and offers something for everyone, with a changing programme of events, activities and displays.
