Atmospheric garden in a valley, stone bridge, quarry garden, red squirrels, rhododendrons, some very tall trees and all overlooked by Kildrummy Castle ruins. No visitors when we were there, strange as it deserves to be much better known.

Beautifully landscaped gardens which provide a wonderful haven for red squirrels and a variety of birds. Must be stunning when the rhodedendrons come out in Spring. It includes a small museum and a playground too which our grandsons had great fun on.

Stunning gardens. Pristinely well kept and very enjoyable to walk around. Cost £10 for two adults which goes towards the upkeep and there is a little cafe there too. If yours in the area then it is well worth a visit

We spent a serendipitous day wondering around the beautifully sunny gardens exploring all the plants, museum room and walks. Such a beautiful estate to visit. We finished the visit off with an afternoon tea at the Kildrummy Castle Hotel and were not disappointed. Recommended!

Lovely gardens, peaceful and picturesque. You can easily fill a morning or afternoon here, pack a picnic and let the children explore. Simple play area, lots of paths and neuks and crannies to find. Great place for an egg hunt. Some paths are stoney so...More
