  • Ellon Castle Gardens

    The beautiful and historic Ellon Castle Gardens is set right in the heart of Ellon. While the old Ellon Castle dates back to the 15th century, the Gardens reached their current size in the early 18th century and in their time, were some of the finest in Scotland. They contain a unique collection of ancient English yews thought to be at least 500 years old.
