Summary

The rich, fertile soil of Angus provides an ideal environment for gardening, so it’s no surprise that within this historic county in North-East Scotland there are a host of wonderful gardens to be enjoyed.

The House of Pitmuies, with its lavishly-planted herbaceous borders, is perhaps the star of the show. We see two grand gardens at Edzell Castle, which features a delightful formal garden, and at Glamis Castle, perhaps better known for its royal connections but home to some lovely grounds. Further highlights include a trip into the Braes of Angus to see an intriguing upland garden; the herbalist’s garden at Logie House; traditional mixed borders at Dunninald, and Langley Park near Montrose, which features four separate walled gardens along with woodland and wildflowers. We conclude our tour with a visit to Gardyne Castle, which after a turbulent history of battles with the neighbouring Guthries, is now surrounded by an enchanting garden created by its current owners over the past few years.

Tour highlights:

  • Historic castles and their fine gardens
  • Sweeping views of Montrose Basin, a haven for birds
  • Travel into the Angus Glens
  • More than 150 different herbs in a ‘physick garden’
  • The richly planted borders of the House of Pitmuies
