Early August the owners generously open these gardens for charity, when a pipe band, Scottish dancers, gun dogs and so on add to the experience. A visit at other times would offer some, but not overwhelming, interest. The view from the castle is very fine, but apart from the tended trees, shrubs, box hedging and some Victorian statuary there is... More

If you like visiting formal gardens, then this is a place to visit and have a wonder around. It is smaller than the average NT gardens. OK for families if you have children who are interested in green things or play hide and seek. However, if you are a hardcore gardener, you might be a bit disappointed when you spot... More

The garden is probably most beautiful that I have seen in Scotland. It's especially nice, that when standing on the castle terrace one gets a good overview about the whole garden. Staff is very friendly, both in the ticket office and also the gardeners. One good spend there several hours enjoining the beauty and harmony.

Despite living in Perthshire for more than 10years I had not heard of this place.... but it surpasses anything they say about it in bochures eg "Perthshire Gardens Collections" (www.perthshiregardens.co.uk). It is situated deep in the country a few miles from Crieff. The gardens lie below an old but well maintained fortified house. On arrival the receptionist was welcoming and... More

These gardens are a complete surprise in the centre of Scotland, and work wonderfully well in the landscape, blending in with the hills in the background. The design is Renaissance, and wonderfully a maintained against the backdrop of an ancient Scottish castle. Please don't fail to visit if you are in the area. There are fountains, statues, perfectly clipped borders... More

absolutely lovely, well worth a visit especially on a sunny day, great for an amble around the extensive manicured grounds. Bear in mind no tea room so take a drink with you. Quite a long road in and out.

This is a great formal garden with lots of hidden nooks. The vegetable garden and greenhouse (though the gate at the bottom the garden) is well worth the walk. Take a picnic on a nice day, there are plenty of areas to enjoy it.

These gardens were not as well maintained as some that we have visited however still worth a look. We were there on a not particularly sunny day and still enjoyed our visit.
