I had seen pictures of this shared on Facebook and made sure we went when we were in the area. It did not disappoint, the view as you walk out onto the terrace is breathtaking. The desings throughout were beautifully manicured and well looked after. We were there in Autumn and the leaves were just starting to turn. The colours... More

To see such a beautiful parterre garden on such a scale was overwhelming. We were really taken with it. The layout is varied and well thought out. The initial view from the castle level looking down onto the scene below is jaw dropping. The maintenance of the garden isn't perfect but no doubt matters are covered in a rota. It... More

We visited on a lovely sunny Friday in August, being nearly the first through the gates at opening time. At first glance the gardens looked stunning and we were thrilled to be there with only one or two other groups to share our, almost private, visit. As we continued around we began to notice little shortcomings and gradually these spoilt... More

We visited in August 2014. This garden is absolutely stunning, and breath-taking when you had your first glimpse from the top. We arrived just past 1pm when it opens and the garden was quite empty. We were able to take a lot of nice photos. There is a bridge on the far-end, great to have your photos taken there with... More

We visited on a wet day but it was still possible to wander around with umbrellas and enjoy the beautiful gardens. Stunning.

Nice view from the side of the Castle upon the garden. But even from the garden with the caste in the background.... not bad at all!!!

Well worth a visit, but not open until after 1pm. It was worth it, if only to experience the one mile long drive lined each side with Beech trees.

Truly one of the most magnificent Italian/French inspired formal gardens attached to the Drummond Castle (actually inhabited). Stepping down the extensive stone staircases leads to a brilliant array of flowers, bushes, lawns and trees designed in a geometric fashion to wow the senses. This is a must see on any Scotland itinerary and is only about an hour outside Edinburgh.

I don't know what Pat H who reviewed in June expects. how many Gardeners can be employed when you are charged £5 to visit? The gardens were really impressive. there was little in the way of weeds in the main garden when we were there and the yew trees and box hedges were neat and trim. There was an impressive... More

We were surprised at the length of the drive (shame that those visiting in coaches will miss this as it appeared they arrive by a different route) - we have visited many stately homes and gardens and this is the longest we've seen. The gardens are laid out beautifully and can be viewed from the top of an exceptionally high... More
