Firstly a note of advice... the sat nav will most likely take you to the back of the gardens. Ignore the last turn in (which will say a sharp right- instead go straight and first left). The car park is a couple minute walk but as you're entering a sign says disabled badge holders can enter, so you would think you can park there however, the lady said if you're a badge holder you can bring your car up to pay your admission then go back to car park with your car and then walk - very strange indeed and not helpful for disabled badge holders. For that reason I'm giving this a 2 star. The £10 admission fee is a bit much I feel personally too. The gardens are beautiful. Very well kept and just lovely. Be prepared to walk though! Apart from the parking issue the Garden itself is lovely.

Stunning gardens and castle and worth a visit. While you can not go into the castle itself the tower is open and has a few displays around. There’s a great little coffee wagon just inside the grounds and made up for a morning stroll around the grounds with an excellent cuppa. We enjoyed the woodland walk which takes you up the furthest statue you can see on the green strip clearing which you see when looking down onto the gardens from the top of the castle.

Feels like I’m in Alice in wonderland! Such a beautiful castle, though you can only see the outside part. I am not sure if they open it to the public on weekends as we visited on weekdays. And the mesmerizing garden is just absolutely stunning and well maintained! Such a great job for the gardeners and the staff. I love how my kid enjoys the beautiful garden. Also, they have a wee coffee shop to warm you up with tasty pastries. This is a must-visit place with your family. Glad we found it just before heading to Kenmore for the holidays.

Lovely gardens just 5 min outside of Crieff. The garden is in good shape. You can spend 1-2 hours wandering around this place.

One of the most beatiful gardens I have visited. The view from the top is impressive. Every tree has been trimmed, the grass is like a carpet.....
