One of Europe’s and Scotland’s most important and impressive formal gardens,

Drummond Castle Gardens is a stunning 19th-century restoration of an original

17th-century formal garden which has featured in films including

Rob Roy,

starring Liam Neeson, and, more recently, in the TV adaptation of Diana

Gabaldon’s

Outlander

. Although Drummond has all the characteristics of a

17th-century Scottish Renaissance garden, it was in fact restructured in early

Victorian times and visited by Queen Victoria herself in 1842. The centrepiece

of the gardens is a recently-restored, historically-unique obelisk sundial. It dates

back to 1630 with around 76 separate faces, and was created by John Mylne,

master mason to Charles I. The gardens are open daily until October.
