We had been told to visit this garden by relatives who are keen gardeners. And boy were they right! It had been heavy rain leading up to our visit and the grass was quite boggy in parts but that didnt hinder our visit. As garden designers we loved all the different "journeys" you can go on in this garden. There are paths leading in all directions and focal points at every turn. The sculptures in the garden are stunning - we especially loved the one girl sitting beside the pond which summed up the tranquility of the garden for us. There is wildlife galore in this garden too - red squirrels, all sorts of birds. The expanses of ponds are lovely and tranquil and the views across the Mull of Galloway to the Isle of Man are stunning. It's not great access if you have a buggy as we did but you can still see a lot of the garden even with the buggy. We took it in turn to explore the areas we could not get to with the buggy so we didnt miss out on anything. We would have give this garden five stars if the tea room had been open as advertised although we were still able to go in and use their rest rooms and use the area to feed our baby. An upgrade to the tea room and making the information boards a bit more professional wouldn't go amiss but it doesn't detract from what are stunningly beautiful gardens. If you are limited on time skip Castle Kennedy Gardens and just go here.
