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.
