Dunninald Castle and Gardens


Dunninald, Montrose, Angus, DD10 9TD

    Dunninald Castle is a family home with an acclaimed walled garden, set in a planned landscape of woods and wild garden, .

    Dunninald was built in 1824 by the architect James Gillespie Graham in the Gothic Revival style.  Guided tours of the castle explain the history of the house, the collections of furniture, paintings and displays of fine needlework photographs and memorabilia, examples of fine plasterwork and trempe l'oeil are also on show. Tours take approximately 40 minutes and start on the hour and half hour.


    Snowdrops in Spring and bluebells in May carpet the woods and wild garden. At its best in July, a highlight of Dunninald is the walled garden. Set a short walk from the house, at then end of a beech avenue the walled garden is south facing with a curved wall, and planted with traditional mixed borders, vegetables, soft fruits, fruit trees and a greenhouse.


    Groups are welcome throughout the year, by prior arrangement.
