I have passed the gates for Drummond Gardens many times and in doing so have missed a gem. I am not sure what I expected, little I think beyond box topiary and yet this garden has a vast amount of interest. The tree lined drive is perhaps the best I have seen and was good when it afforded glimpses of... More

The gardens are stunning. Many gardeners there to keep it that way. We took a packed lunch and sat overlooking the view which was just beautiful and peaceful, apart from the men trimming and mowing. The greenhouses are packed with all types of fruit and flowers. The only part that looked unkempt to us was the pond which would be... More

We visited the Drummond Castle in July 2014, the last day of our 10 day trip to Scotland. Spectacular gardens - like nothing you've ever seen!!

Fabulous formal garden, probably one of the best in UK. We had a disabled person in our group: the lady in the ticket office explained how to drive down to the bottom of the garden to gain access. She also opened a small veranda to allow a view from the top (which is the best way to see the formal... More

The gardens looked spectacular from the top but unfortunately we're very disappointing at ground level. There was an awful lot of weed in the flower beds and all the lawns needed edging. You are charging people to see the gardens so they should be better than they were. The kitchen garden was a disgrace, the strawberry was full of weed.... More

We were understandably too early to see the gardens at their best, visiting as we did in early May but they are still spectacular. It is £5 per person which may seem hefty but you have to consider the extraordinary cost that must be experienced in maintaining it. There is a fabulous vegetable and fruit garden that is a working... More

No access to the House, No refreshments and convoluted exit from the grounds and OK garden to visit near Crieff which will no doubt be spectacular in a couple of weeks

This is a site not to be missed. It is perfect. Make sure to plan enough time to really absorb this powerful landscape. The paths, the flowers, the groundplan, the trees and the terraces all come together to form a synergistic whole that stirs and astounds. Some of the fine old trees have been documented to date from the 1840s.... More
