About the garden

Drumlanrig Castle is a 17th century castle and is the Dumfriesshire home of the 10th Duke of Buccleuch & Queensberry.

There are formal gardens and a 183m long terrace walk along a magnificent stone balustrade that’s well-known for growing tender climbing plants. There are modern additions to the gardens that include a rambling woodland garden and huge rhododendron collection. You can also purchase plants from the gift shop.

There are 40-acres of beautifully maintained gardens lead to the extensive estate, with waymarked walks, cycling, land rover tours, tea room, and shop. The castle and its grounds are available for corporate and private events. Other highlights include restored Victorian glasshouses and the distinctive heather houses.
