Trip Report Scottish Gardens

Jump to last reply

I have recently added a couple more gardens to Eleanor's pages.

I can't find the original thread for this, so have started a new one. Drummond Castle Gardens are still my favourite gardens in Scotland. The view looking down on them from the top of the terrace never eases to take my breath away. Pictures just don’t do it justice. It really has to be seen to be believed.

Nearly as good are Pitmedden Gardens, a C17th status symbol, with over five miles of neatly trimmed box hedges and summer bedding.

The gardens of Edzell castle are thought to be one of the finest Renaissance Gardens to survive in Scotland, and there is a ruined castle to explore too.

Dirleton Castle Gardens are famous for their flower border which is in the Guinness book of Records as being the longest herbaceous border in the world. In mid summer this is a blaze of colour.

Port Logan Gardens is an outstation of the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh. On the Mull of Galloway, the warming effects of the Gulf Stream allow semi-tropical plants to flourish with tree ferns and palms. This has been described as one of the most exotic gardens in Britain.

Benmore Gardens is another outpost with an avenue of giant redwoods and many different species of conifers climbing up the steep mountain sides. This really is a garden for all seasons and made us realise just how important conifers can be in giving shape and different colours to a garden. It also has over 300 species of rhododendrons in flower from May to August.
