Cawdor Castle Gardens

Uniquely for a Scottish Castle, Cawdor boasts three very different gardens. Each with their own history that generations of owners have over the years, transformed and extended. As a result, these ideas are represented today by the Walled Garden, the Flower Garden and the Wild Garden.

Supplied by a wealth of flora and fauna, the gardens at Cawdor Castle are ever changing with the seasons. They include roses, rhododendrons, the rare blue poppy, topiary, spring bulbs and contemporary sculptures.

In addition the Big Wood, a remnant of the ancient Caledonian forest is home to splendid trees and nature trails. Furthermore on certain days walk to nearby Auchindoune House, the summer house of the Dowager Countess Cawdor. Here you can explore the Tibetan, formal and vegetable gardens as well as an orchard and arboretum.

Guided Tours are available by prior arrangement with our Head Gardener. Please email to find out more.
