Drumlanrig Castle Gardens
Drumlanrig Castle Gardens are set on the 90,000 acre Queensberry Estate and date from the 17th century.
The gardens date back to the time of William Douglas, the 1st Duke of Queensberry, and work began on them around 1689. They extend to over 70 acres and include great formal parterres, dells, rockeries and charming summer houses as well as many impressive trees and a collection of rare shrubs from China.
There is also the newly restored Victorian Greenhouse, a vegetable garden and a plant centre selling a wide range of quality plants, many of them raised in the gardens.
During spring, the air is filled with the scent of flowering azalea making the walk through the wooded glades filled with bluebells, specimen trees and shrubs even more enjoyable. See one of the first Douglas Firs planted in the country and the tallest weeping Beech in the British Isles. Stop and rest in one of the recently restored Victorian heather houses and take in the view.
Enjoy deliciuos light refreshments from the Larchwood Cabin, at the garden entrance, the perfect stop to re-fuel!
