Kildrummy Castle Gardens

Right now, the rhododendrons are blazing at Kildrummy Castle Gardens, Alford, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Designed in the 20th century by Colonel James Ogstone and set in the grounds of a ruined 13th century castle, the gardens are home to a water garden and a rock garden situated in an old quarry — where the sandstone to build the castle was dug. A highlight is a replica of the Brig (“bridge”) o’Balgownie in Old Aberdeen.

Kildrummy Castle Gardens contain a wide variety of water plants in and around its four ponds, as well as a selection of shrubs and alpine plants. Nearby is the North Sea coastline, marked by sandy beaches, craggy clifftops and secluded bays.

The coast is also dotted with old-fashioned fishing villages, many of them with their own pubs – the ideal place to take a break from your outdoor explorations and sample the seafood.

The gardens are open from April through October. Entrance fee for adults is £3.50.
