Seen from the back room the garden looks lovely, but when you walk through it, the garden is even more beautiful. Small stream, Quirky objects, and you end up near the ruins.

Atmospheric garden in a valley, stone bridge, quarry garden, red squirrels, rhododendrons, some very tall trees and all overlooked by Kildrummy Castle ruins. No visitors when we were there, strange as it deserves to be much better known.
