 Description of Garden
Designer: John Drummond, 2nd Earl of Perth
Situated in Perthshire, Drummond Castle Gardens provide a perfect example of Italianate formal landscaping but have an added appeal as a contrast to the Scottish countryside in which they lie.

The dramatic entrance, up a mile-long beech-lined avenue, is an eye-opening prelude to the early 17th century gardens. Designed by John Drummond, 2nd Earl of Perth, they were later terraced by Phyllis Astor, Countess of Ancaster, and replanted in the 1950s. The magnificent parterre is the reason for the gardens being known as the most important formal gardens in Scotland and "among the finest in Europe".

The gardens featured in the United Artists film, "Rob Roy".
 History of Garden
The garden boasts a copper beech tree that was planted by Queen Victoria in 1842.
