Visited today and were lucky to enjoy the gardens in lovely sunny weather. Gardens are beautiful although I've seen nicer ... Some parts of the lawn are covered in weeds and there is a real lack of flowers on show (then again I'm no expert on these sort of things). It was all mainly hedges and Greek statues. Entry is...

Gardens nicely set out. Would be problems for less able bodied people to go round. Although map shows a wheelchair friendly route still requires negotiation of steps which are very steep. Initial cobbles leading to gardens would be treacherous if wer.

A restful, yet interesting garden with good walks, and fabulous greenhouses. Drummond Gardens satisfied the soul.

I've done a lot of these trips to see a garden while touring the UK but this one was probably the best albeit we visited in April when the garden's not at its best but still worth seeing the tree Queen Victoria planted in 1842, the woodland walk with deer everywhere you looked and the manicured lawns and boxhedge. It... More

For plant enthusiasts this is a good place to visit. Appeals to all ages with loads of places for children to run around. Some Outlander scenes were filmed here . No restaurants but a small shop selling a few trinkets and some sweets.

although not the best time of the year to visit we still found it interesting, Would love to see it in the summer when all the flowers were in bloom. You could definitely spend a full day there

A lovely formal garden to stroll around with the background of a castle. Worth a stop and walk around and imagine years gone by. Friendly staff and small shop. Access for disabled people from the walled garden.

Well worth the visit. It was stunning weather the day we visited which helped too. The long drive up is even spectacular and I could easily imagine the horse and carriages trotting up the drive. The symmetry of the gardens is amazing, we spent a good couple of hours just slowly enjoying our walk and our 6 year old had... More

Absolutely breathtaking! We decided to visit the gardens (was free to HHA members) but weren't expecting to see thIs absolutely beautiful spectacle. The castle was set high on a hill and below a steep bank was the most well planned and laid out garden - from designer hedges, to beautiful trees in all their autumn splendour, this was a truly...
