In William Shakespeare’‘s play Macbeth (1603-06), the titular character resides at Glamis Castle, although the historical King Macbeth of Scotland (d. 1057) had no connection to the castle.

Glamis Castle is the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

The most famous legend connected with the castle is that of the Monster of Glamis, a hideously deformed child born to the family. In the story, the monster was kept in the castle all his life and his suite of rooms bricked up after his death. Another monster is supposed to have dwelt in Loch Calder near the castle.
