[Drummond Castle & Gardens]

Drummond Castle Gardens are surely one of Scotland's most amazing formal landcapes. The grounds encapsulate a magnificent set of perfect parterres dotted with bushes, statues, sundials and flowerbeds, while resplendent peacocks wander the lawns and ducks dabble in the tranquil pond. Don't miss the greenhouses and kitchen gardens just outside the southern walls. All of this is backed by a 15th century tower house and later mansion up on a low ridge - these buildings are private but provide a dramatic backdrop. Visit on a hot summer day and it'll feel like you're somewhere on the Continent rather than on the edge of the Scottish Highlands - who needs budget airlines when you can escape here instead?
