A lovely place to spend a couple of hours. Although called "gardens", it's really more woodland walks through various avenues of trees. However, there is a walled garden which wasn't looking it's best when we were there. There are two lochs and also a Victorian lily pond. It is a very picturesque area and there is also the ruin of Castle Kennedy. It has a nice tea room with plenty of outdoor seating.

Beautiful and huge garden. Kind staff and good tea. I was lucky with a sunny day.

The vivid pinks and reds of the plants there were magical. Felt transported to another world.
