Our Gardens

Cawdor is fortunate enough to have three gardens: the Walled Garden, the Flower Garden and the Wild Garden

The Walled Garden is the oldest and dates from c.1600 and later became a kitchen garden. The Flower Garden was laid out some 100 years later and was originally designed for enjoyment in late summer and autumn. However this garden's season has been extended to give pleasure from early spring, with bulbs, bedding plants, herbaceous borders, ornamental trees and shrubs all providing delight. The Wild Garden is the youngest, being planted in the 1960s and lies between the Castle and the stream of the Cawdor Burn.
 
With fertile soil, a climate tempered by the Gulf stream, rainfall well distributed throughout the year, around 18 hours of sunshine during the summer and, of course, Derek Hosie, our head gardener, the gardens at Cawdor Castle grow beautifully.
