MORAY’S ICONIC BRODIE CASTLE is inviting people to grab Christmas by the Antlers with their annual and greatly anticipated craft and food fair.

The popular fair returns to the National Trust for Scotland site on November 28 and 29, providing the perfect setting for browsing the highest quality local crafts in one place.

Spread over two floors in the historic castle and its stables, alongside the craft fair there will again be a food fair located in the castle’s Victorian Kitchen. Regardless of the weather outside a warm welcome is assured inside for the two-day event that runs from 10am to 4pm each day.

A Brodie Castle spokesman said: “The castle’s own gift shop and tearoom will be open to welcome visitors and the adventure play park will also be available for younger guests to have fun.

“The quality and range of goods on offer is truly impressive. Other food treats to purchase will include gorgeous bakes, teas, chocolate and desserts and highland beef, bacon, sausages and venison.”

Arts and Crafts at the Castle are the preserve of Isabel Stewart of Exclusively Highlands, who is organising the craft fair at Brodie. She promises unusual, thought-provoking and “downright exquisite” handcrafted items for everyone to see, admire and purchase over the two days.  These will include extremely pretty jewellery, wonderfully detailed artworks and attractive pottery.

Ticket price is £4 for all adults – Trust members and non-members – and 50p for children will include non-alcoholic mulled punch and a mince pie for each visitor.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance at or at the door on the day.
