Description: Gordonstoun is famous for educating the Royal family, but its history dates much further back, including the 18th century Georgian home of the first marquis of Huntly. The school gardens consist of formal herbaceous borders, an ornamental lake and an apple orchard. Visitors will also be given a guided tour of the extensive school grounds including the unique 'Round Square' former farm building (now boarding house) which has an unusual echo and can stroll down the 'silent walk' to the 17th century kirk where former students including HRH Prince Philip would have worshipped.
