Drummond Gardens are some of Scotland’s most important formal gardens and are among the finest in Europe.
A mile of beech-lined avenue leads to a formidable ridge-top tower house. Enter through the woven iron portcullis and suddenly revealed is a magnificent Italianate parterre.
First laid out in the early 17th century and redesigned and terraced in the 19th century, the gardens you see today were replanted in the 1950s, preserving features such as the ancient yew hedges and the copper beech trees planted by Queen Victoria, to commemorate her visit in 1842.
The gardens featured in the United Artists film Rob Roy. The castle is not open to the public but the gardens offer marvellous views of the castle and surrounding countryside.
