Fingask Castle – opening for charity with Scotland’s Gardens Scheme

January 30th, 2023 - March 2nd, 2023

Scotland’s surrealist garden: spectacular topiary staggers across the garden bumping into stone globes, marble balls, statues and a figure of Alice (in Wonderland). Other literary and historical characters are scattered among the 17th-century pleasure gardens. Bonnie Prince Charlie and his father are said to have approached the castle up the long yew avenue known as 'The King's Walk'. A 15-minute walk takes you down to the dell beneath the castle and St Peter’s Well – a stopping place for medieval pilgrims on their way to the bones of the saintly Queen Margaret at Dunkeld Cathedral. Return via a Chinese bridge, Gabriel’s bridge, an iron age fort, along a stream, past Sir Stuart’s House and back to the castle via the Old Orchard. There are large drifts of snowdrops.
