Brodie is the home of the National Daffodil Collection, so puts on a fine show in spring. The castle also has a very well-preserved 16th-century central keep with two 5-storey towers on opposing corners. The interior of the castle is well preserved, containing fine antique furniture, oriental artefacts and painted ceilings, largely dating from the 17th–19th centuries.
