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

The gardens were absolutely fantastic, so well kept and beautiful. Everything was flourishing and we had an amazing day out - helped by the sun shining, it really topped off a great day out. Tina and Alan

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
