Fingask Castle

Rait PH2 7SA
Mr and Mrs Andrew Murray Threipland
T:01821 670777 ext 2 andrew@fingaskcastle.com
Scotland’s surrealist garden: spectacular topiary staggers across the garden bumping into stone globes, marble balls, statues and a figure of Alice (in Wonderland). Other literary and historical characters are scattered among the 17th-century pleasure gardens. Bonnie Prince Charlie and his father are said to have approached the castle up the long yew avenue known as 'The King's Walk'. A 15-minute walk takes you down to the dell beneath the castle and St Peter’s Well – a stopping place for medieval pilgrims on their way to the bones of the saintly Queen Margaret at Dunkeld Cathedral. Return via a Chinese bridge, Gabriel’s bridge, an iron age fort, along a stream, past Sir Stuart’s House, and back to the castle via the Old Orchard parking area. There are large drifts of snowdrops, daffodils and flowering shrubs depending on the season.
Champion Trees: Pinus wallichiana (Bhutan Pine) and the handsome remnants of what was the largest walnut in Scotland
