Stop At: Drummond Gardens, 2 miles south of Crieff on the Muthill Road (A822) Drummond Castle, Crieff PH7 4HZ Scotland
Located deep in Perthshire, Drummond Castle is a 15th century keep with a 17th century mansion house extension, set into 12 acres of formal terraced gardens. The Castle has seen a lot of history and is connected to Oliver Cromwell and The Jacobite cause, eventually being seized as a government asset. Today the house is private but the claimed gardens are considered to be the best example of their kind in Scotland and well worth a visit.
