About

Kildrummy Castle is a ruined castle near the town of Kildrummy in Aberdeenshire, a region in northern Scotland. Although in ruins, it is probably the most complete XIIIᵉ century castle to survive in eastern Scotland.  It served as a seat for the Earls of Mar.

The garden below the Kildrummy Castle is a very special place to see. The main feature is the wonderful bridge that spans across four ponds fed by a white water spring. a Japanese firm was hired to create the water garden in 1904 by the owner.
There is a wide selection of water garden plants, but that is not all - there are good displays of rhododendrons in late spring and other colorful plantings in the quarry garden.
