Drummond Castle Garden, near Crieff
Drummond Castle Gardens. One of the finest formal gardens in Britain
The Gardens at Drummond Castle are outstanding and when viewed from the terrace you will know why. They were first laid out in the early 17th century and re-designed and terraced in the early 19th century. Thank goodness Capability Brown did not get hold of them!
The gardens you see today were replanted during the 1950s preserving such features as the ancient yew hedges and the copper beech trees planted by Queen Victoria to commemorate her visit in 1842.
The garden was principally the work of Lewis Kennedy of Vineyard Nursery in Hammersmith, who supplied plants to many of Britain’s finest gardens
See the famous sundial and the white Italian statuary.
Drummond Castle has one of the best formal gardens in Britain. Editor's choice and is a must visit.
