A great value day out for all the family (including dogs). Drummond Castle is an amazing formal garden hidden away in Perthshire and is on par with the gardens of the Palace of Versailles. The gardens were used as the Palace of Versailles in the last series of Outlander. The disabled parking is located next to the staff access for the gardens and a short walk brings you out into the middle of the formal garden. On arrival you'll need park up in the main carpark and get a code from the ticket kiosk in case the staff access is shut (it was open the day we visited). The gardens have gravel paths which are pretty hard going for a manual wheelchair, there are alternative grass paths available for manual wheelchairs and buggies. A good powerchair would be able to use the gravel paths and the grass paths in reasonable weather. Allow 1-2 hours for your visit. there's plenty of space for picnics either on the grass or using the many benches dotted around the gardens. There is a disabled toilet but we did not use this facility. The staff were very helpful both on the phone and the day of our visit. After visiting the gardens a short drive takes you to the many visitor attractions of Crieff.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Would defiantly recommend the gardens to others. As this is a outdoor venue always best to call shortly before you plan to visit to check the conditions.
