Kildrummy Castle Gardens

Submitted by on September 12, 2010 – 2:43 amNo Comment

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.
