The main entrance to Gordon Castle Walled Garden is situated at the western end of the village of Fochabers on the A96, approximately nine miles east of Elgin and twelve miles west of Keith. Coming from Elgin, once you pass Baxters take the next right at the roundabout then first left through the castle arches. From Keith, take the first exit at the roundabout into Fochabers and follow through the village until you see the arches on your right hand side. From Perth, take the north bound A9 to Aviemore, then follow A95, A941 and A96 to Fochabers. Our address is Gordon Castle Walled Garden, Fochabers, Moray IV32 7PQ.
