Visit Walled Garden

Visit the Walled Garden

A hidden gem situated between the River Spey and the Moray Coast, our Walled Garden is one of Scotland’s best kept secrets. At almost eight acres in size it is one of the oldest and largest kitchen gardens in Britain and has been lovingly restored to its former glory with a modern design by world famous designer Arne Maynard. An oasis of peace and tranquility, the garden is also a hive of activity. Constantly tended by a small team of dedicated gardeners, a myriad of herbs, cut flowers, fruit and vegetables are grown within its ancient walls making the garden as beautiful as it is productive.

Open all year round, come and relax in the peaceful surroundings and see our gardeners hard at work, digging, sowing, hoeing and harvesting. Try delicious freshly picked produce in our award-winning café or browse a range of over 200 products in our shop, all based on the plants we grow or inspired by the Gordon Castle Estate. With a wonderful natural play area and seasonal garden trails, there is plenty for children to see and enjoy as well.
