castle and village in the council area and historic county of Angus, eastern Scotland. The present castle, a fine example of Scottish Baronial architecture, dates from the late 17th century, though the site is believed to have been occupied since the 11th century, when the Scottish monarch Macbeth was thane (ruler) of Glamis. In 1372 the castle became the seat of the earls of Strathmore. The castle contains fine collections of paintings, tapestries, and weapons. Pop. (2001) 1,024.
