The innovative Macbeth Trail, located in the Pinetum, was first proposed by Des Cotton, Head Gardener in conjunction with Tommy Baxter, General Manager. Neith Art and Sculpture, collaborative artists who work predominantly in wood, were commissioned to produce a series of seven sculptures. The Macbeth Trail at Glamis is sculpted from Oak, Douglas Fir and Noble Fir trees grown on the Estate. The artists have successfully captured the essence of the play by sculpting major scenes; the work is figurative but captures the madness, mental turmoil and tempestuous weather of the play.

The seven sculptures created by Neith Art and Sculpture are;

  • The Three Witches
  • King Duncan
  • Macbeth
  • Banquo
  • Lady Macbeth
  • Macbeth Contemplating
  • Macduff
