Description: Armadale Castle Gardens sit in a magnificent setting on the southern tip of the Isle of Skye, with sweeping views over the Sound of Sleat to the mountains of Knoydart. The estate was once the seat of the Macdonalds of Sleat and is now run by a charitable trust. Visitors can enjoy 40 acres of historic woodland gardens featuring 19th century specimen trees and exotic shrubs. Formal lawns, tranquil ponds and colourful herbaceous borders are set around the romantic ruins of Armadale Castle. There’s also an adventure playground, café and fascinating museum telling the story of the Highlands & Islands through the eyes of Clan Donald.
