THE CASTLE GROUNDS
The highest standards of relaxed luxury hospitality
The gardens and grounds of Rothes Glen are extensive and private and have been lovingly restored and improved since we bought the house in 2019. The castle is approached by a long cherry tree lined driveway, and we are surrounded by formal gardens, a stunning meadow with magnificent specimen trees and a private lochan. The formal private gardens include a terrace rose garden, mosaic topiary garden and extensive lawns for croquet, games or relaxing on one of our sun loungers.
There is a large terrace and fountain furnished with a garden table and chairs and a large firepit, ideal for outdoor dining or barbecues or just enjoying the Speyside sunshine. The formal gardens are surrounded by a beech hedge, and you can stroll down the steps into the gorgeous meadow towards the lochan, complete with rowing boat, fed by the Granty Burn. If you’re lucky you may spot our local osprey, red squirrels, pine martens or resident deer dashing in and out of the trees. Whether it's snowdrops and daffodils in the spring, or rhododendrons and lilies in the summer, the gardens and grounds are idyllic all year round, reflecting the grandeur of Rothes Glen and the beauty of the surrounding scenery.
