The Castle and Gardens of Mey


The Castle and Gardens of Mey, located on the North Coast 500 route near Thurso, was the only home The Queen Mother ever owned. The Castle of Mey have held Visit Scotland's highest award of a 5 Star quality assurance grading every year since their first unannounced visit in 2007. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother first saw what was then Barrogill Castle in 1952. Falling for its isolated charm and hearing it was to be abandoned, she decided to save it. The visitor centre, tearoom, shop, grounds and animal centre are open every day during the season from 10am until 5pm.
