This is a pleasant walk around the pond at Brodie Castle. The water feature lies at the end of a long avenue of trees leading west from the castle. It provides a peaceful and relaxing walk, with wildlife and particularly birds to be seen all year round.
It’s a great place for families to visit the resident ducks and swans.
An interesting feature of the pond is a floating bio-sculpture, added in 2016 as part of the Findhorn Bay Festival to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design. Biomatrix was commissioned to develop a series of floating ecosystems to form a biological sculpture. This project creates a habitat for birds, fish and other species.
There is parking for about four cars at the pond, but you can park in the castle grounds if visiting the castle (fee for non-members of the NTS)
