Kilcoy Castle

Redcastle, by Muir of Ord IV6 7RX
Kilcoy Castle Estate
To the front of the castle are steps which lead on to grass terraces surrounded by shrubs and trees: the walled garden leads off to the east. The area farthest from the castle has been restyled based on the poem Solitude by Thomas Merton. The shape is rhomboid with a central point taken from which the design radiates planted with pleached hornbeam, underplanted with willow. Box holly and yew hedges are still to grow to fruition. Work is ongoing with new herbaceous border and different planting using annuals and herbaceous plants; the garden will host a further vibrant display of colourful plants within the walled garden along with a greenhouse in full production.

Directions: From the Tore roundabout, take the A832, go past Fettes Sawmill on the left. Turn right at Kilcoy Kindergarten (an old church) heading towards Kilcoy. Go along the single road for about a quarter mile and you will see the Kilcoy Castle entrance on the left.
