Drummond Castle Garden's
by Crieff. The gardens were first laid out by John Drummond, the 2nd Earl of Perth in the early 17th century, and renewed in the 1950's by Phyllis Astor. The yew hedges and copper beech trees were planted by Queen Victoria in 1842. The formal gardens are said to be one of the finest formal gardens in Europe and are seen at their best in early August.
Open Easter weekend and afternoons from May to October, the gardens are well worth a visit.
