The whole point of a vacation is to visit unique places. Taking it a leve deeper reveals that we all should visit sites and places off the beaten path; the not-so-touristy unique experiences worth bragging about. Drummond Castle and their gardens qualify. If you are a fan of the film "Rob Roy" you will recognize a memorable movie scene as... More

Amazing vista when you arrive here and view the gardens for the first time. The topiary was probably the best I've ever seen. Combined with the autumn colours it made for a stunning combination.i

We managed to pick a bright and sunny day and decided to pay this place a visit. It starts with a magnificent mile long, tree lined drive up to the castle and gardens themselves. This alone was worthwhile as it is truly a spectacular drive. On arriving at the castle, the car park is clearly signposted and only a minutes... More

We visit a LOT of gardens, and this was a real find. The whole experience was delightful - from the lovely, welcoming steward in the ticket office to the stunning layout and planting. As other reviewers have already commented, the initial view over the gardens from the top of the steps is genuinely breathtaking, and I can only think of... More

My husband has no enthusiasm for gardens but this made him even say WOW. The gardens are huge and extremely well-kept. The receptionist can tell you all about the history of the family and gardens. It was well worth the stop.

The first views of these gardens are absolutely breathtaking and merit spending time just taking in the wonderful panorama. There are quite a lot of steps to descend into the gardens but it is well worth it.These gardens are extremely well maintained and show a lot of care and detail as gone into their maintenance over many years.We definitely recommend...

The French/Italian style gardens are almost incongruous in the heart of Perthshire. But the first impact of them from the castle entrance takes your breath away, an experience enhanced by the extensive avenue, which borrows the landscape (and leads to the horizon beyond). Immaculate Italian white marble statues are only matched by the finely manicured topiaries.

We arrived as the Gardens were opening for the afternoon and drove along the tree lined route to the car park. The toilets on arrival there were spotless and spacious!. Knowing there were no cafe facilities we had taken a picnic. There is a picnic table at the car park. At £5, £4 and £2 admission, my daughter, grandaughter and... More

Beautiful gardens, affording a great walk and views. It was a long drive away from the gardens since arriving and departing traffic have different routes, but well worth it for the experience.
