There is a large outdoor museum of village life, but please check as the village cottages were closed while repairs were made. Glamis Castle is open in the Spring and hold events through the summer season and at Christmas a open Christmas market. If you enjoy history then Glamis is a stop off place, it is were Shakespeare got his idea for the The Three Witches or Weird Sisters or Wayward Sisters who are characters in Shakespeare's play Macbeth (c. 1603–1607). They hold a striking resemblance to the three "Fates" (in Greek mythology), and are, perhaps, intended as a twisted version of the white-robed incarnations of destiny. But its also said that he got the inspiration for the three from the Forfar witch trials which were held in the town of Forfar. Macbeth is based on Glamis Castle as it was the home of King Malcolm II is murdered on the site of the present castle. Macbeth is deposed and Malcolm III becomes King of Scots in 1057
