Description of Garden

Kildrummy Castle Gardens were created in the ancient quarry below the mediaeval castle, the ruins of which provide a wonderful backdrop. The bridge spanning the garden is a copy of the famous Brig o' Balgownie and reflects beautifully on the largest of the four ponds which play host to a wide range of water plants. The quarry, left behind after the building of the castle in the 12th century, is now planted with fine examples of alpines and shrubs. Kildrummy Castle Gardens offer peace and tranquility in an idyllic setting.
