After determindly finding the entrance in pouring rain - we parked what seemed miles from the castle....................... The office staff were neither helpful or polite. We were literally left to our own devices to enjoy the view of the gardens below. Formal yes ,but obviously not well tended. No toilets or possibility of a snack or drink - so went... More

I'm sorry that you didn't appear to enjoy your visit. Distances always seem further when walking in the rain but it's only a couple of hundred yards from the car park to the gardens. I'm also sorry you didn't find the toilets - located in the car park, or the refreshments we sell in the ticket office. October is often... More

Only rated this as average - because of the facilities and parts of the garden needed a good weeding! The gardens are stunning from a distance - but once you get up closer a bit of work needs done. Nowhere to get a coffee or a meal on site. If they did this I'd definitely mark up. Good parking, nice... More

This formal garden was more than I expected. The formal hedging, statues and beautiful trees give this garden a wonderful atmosphere.

Despite several visits to Crieff we have always missed this place. Well we missed a gem. If you are in the area this has to be seen. It's magnificent

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.
