Magnificence, Marriage, and Murder: The Story of Scotland's Brodick Castle
Friday, October 21, 4:00-5:15 p.m. ET
Presented by Curt DiCamillo
In partnership with The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA
The story of Brodick Castle is the story of a country, a family, and a time and place. Located on Scotland’s West Coast on the Isle of Arran, Brodick is breathtaking inside and out. The grand, red sandstone Scottish baronial style castle is dramatically set against the backdrop of Goatfell Mountain, with stunning views over Brodick Bay to the Firth of Clyde. Inside, the Castle is renowned for its impressive collection of period furniture, silverware, porcelain, paintings, and sporting trophies set in richly appointed rooms.
Magnificence, Marriage & Murder is a lecture that gives an inside view of a remarkable historical property and an outstanding decorative arts collection, which, due to its remote location, is rarely seen by the public. It also includes the still-unsolved 1889 murder in the park at Brodick, known as the Goatfell Murder. Join Curt DiCamillo for a lecture full of history, personalities, collecting, bling, and a bit of fun that is guaranteed to engage and entertain.
