Description of Garden

Blair Castle is at the hub of a breathtaking historic landscape most of which was laid out in the 18th century and features a magnificent Georgian walled garden, a peaceful wooded grove, a ruined kirk, a red deer park and a whimsical gothic folly. Colourful peacocks roam the grounds, Highland cattle graze in fields nearby and the native red squirrel can often be spotted amongst the branches.

Hercules Garden is a stunning 9 acre walled garden recently restored to its original Georgian design. Named after the life-sized statue of Hercules which overlooks the garden, it incorporates landscaped ponds, a folly, a Chinese bridge and an impressive orchard of more than 100 fruit trees. The glory of this garden in summer are the herbaceous borders which run along the 275m south-facing wall.

Diana's Grove, a tranquil wooded area adjacent to the castle affords a unique opportunity to enjoy some of the county's finest and tallest trees in a space of just two acres.
