Kildrummy Castle Gardens were created in the ancient quarry below the medieval Castle, the ruin of which provides a wonderful backdrop. The bridge spanning the garden is a copy of famous brig o' Balgownie and reflects beautifully on the largest of the four ponds which plays host to a wide range of water plants. The quarry, left behind after the building of the castle in the 12th Century is now planted with fine examples of alpines and shrubs. Kildrummy Castle Gardens offer peace and tranquility in an idyllic setting.

Donside

A beautiful area of countryside that follows the river don from Aberdeen west in to the Cairngorms. Not quite as famous as Royal Deeside but just as beautiful and part of the Queen's Trail that is recognised as part of Queen Victoria's most favourite areas for walking and touring. The focus town for the area is Alford which houses the Grampian Transport Museum, Haughton Country Park and the Alford valley railway. The Lonach gathering highland games are a major attraction on the 4th Saturday of every August.
