Castle Kennedy Gardens

Castle Kennedy



Castle Kennedy Gardens

is one of Scotland`s finest gardens.

The gardens are a hidden treasure in South West Scotland – a perfect haven for relaxing and exploring.

Castle Kennedy Gardens are near Stranraer and extend to 75 acres. An elaborate series of terraces and sculptures can be found forming stunning patterns of curves and banks.

The gardens at Castle Kennedy date back as far as the 1730 s. There are colourful displays of rhododendrons, azaleas and embothriums. Also many rare and exotic plants, 20 champion trees and the romantic ruins of Castle Kennedy. The 150 year old Monkey Puzzle Tree avenue is just one of many avenues planted with a single tree species.

Castle Kennedy Gardens hold a number of events throughout the season. Open Air Theatre productions are also held and full details of these events can be found in their website.

Welcome to Castle Kennedy Gardens

There is a tea room in the gardens providing light lunches, home baking etc. You can visit the tea room without paying admission to the gardens.

Castle Kennedy Gardens form part of the Gardens of Galloway – Scotland`s Garden route.

The gardens are open daily 31 March to 31 October.
