Friends of Cawdor Castle Gardens

Cawdor Castle is delighted to introduce the Friends of Cawdor Castle Gardens membership scheme.

With the friends membership you can enjoy access to the Castle’s three gardens, woodlands, nature trails, shops, Coffee House and Courtyard Cafe. From walking in the woods, strolling around the beautiful gardens, viewing the contemporary sculptures and relaxing with a refreshment in the licensed café makes an ideal day out and the membership allows as many repeat visits as you can manage!
