Fasque Castle the former family home of William Gladstone, four times Prime Minister under Queen Victoria, is set deep within its own forested parkland at the end of a drive through a private deer park. The current owners have restored the house to its former glory and the gardens are becoming more stunning each year. Landscaping of the West Garden took place in 2013 with a sunken terrace garden containing a formal pond and a mixture of formal and herbaceous plants. There are some magnificent trees and beautiful long walks in the surrounding woodlands.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
