I've done a lot of these trips to see a garden while touring the UK but this one was probably the best albeit we visited in April when the garden's not at its best but still worth seeing the tree Queen Victoria planted in 1842, the woodland walk with deer everywhere you looked and the manicured lawns and boxhedge.

For plant enthusiasts this is a good place to visit. Appeals to all ages with loads of places for children to run around. Some Outlander scenes were filmed here . No restaurants but a small shop selling a few trinkets and some sweets.

although not the best time of the year to visit we still found it interesting, Would love to see it in the summer when all the flowers were in bloom. You could definitely spend a full day there

A lovely formal garden to stroll around with the background of a castle. Worth a stop and walk around and imagine years gone by. Friendly staff and small shop. Access for disabled people from the walled garden.

Well worth the visit. It was stunning weather the day we visited which helped too. The long drive up is even spectacular and I could easily imagine the horse and carriages trotting up the drive. The symmetry of the gardens is amazing, we spent a good couple of hours just slowly enjoying our walk and our 6 year old had... More

Absolutely breathtaking! We decided to visit the gardens (was free to HHA members) but weren't expecting to see thIs absolutely beautiful spectacle. The castle was set high on a hill and below a steep bank was the most well planned and laid out garden - from designer hedges, to beautiful trees in all their autumn splendour, this was a truly...

The gardens are close to Crieff and you turn into the grounds through a very narrow entrance and then along a one way narrow road which seems to go on forever - c 1mile+ at a guess and which must be a challenge in inclement weather. There is a large car park with toilets in a chalet type building but... More

Living in England I've been visiting Perthshire all my life on holiday, but for some reason never made it to Drummond Gardens. Taking advantage of the Gardeners' World 2-4-1 offer we decided to spend the afternoon there, and boy, what a good decision that was. Like some other reviewers, I'm not normally into formality, but these gardens are just breathtaking.... More

First travel along the long narrow tree-lined drive, then after parking the car, take a few minutes to look at the bars, grills and spy-holes of the forbidding gatehouse before entering the courtyard to get your first overview of the stunning garden stretched out below. Marvel at the symmetry of the layout, noting where it is not as balanced as... More
