Take the Perth to
Crief road, A85
, approximately 20 miles. At Crief
turn on to the A822 for 2 miles.
The castle and gardens are on the right.
One of the finest formal gardens in Europe and has also on occassions been called the pride and jewel of the highlands.
The castle was build by the Drummonds from Stobhill in 1491 and later become the residence and seat of the family.
The entrance is through the old castle and leads to the terrace overlooking the gardens which can be seen in the photograph above.
Filming took place here for the movie "Rob Roy, Legends of the Mist". Drummond Castle and gardens were used for the residence of "Montrose".
The castle gardens date from the 17th century and were redesigned and terraced in the early 19th century.
The gardens seen today were replanted during the 1950's preserving features such as the ancient yew hedges and the copper beech trees planted by Queen Victoria in 1842.
Also to be seen is the John Mylne (of Perth) Sundial (left), erected by the Earl of Perth in 1630.
You could spend most of the day walking around this lovely garden looking at the features on display and enjoy every minute, I know I did.
