The Castle and Gardens of Mey

The Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust
T:01847 851473 enquiries@castleofmey.org.uk
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother bought what was then Barrogill Castle in 1952 before renovating and restoring the z-plan castle and creating the beautiful gardens you see today, renaming it The Castle and Gardens of Mey. This romantic and unique garden is a reminder that, however daunting the weather, it is often possible with a little vision and energy to create and maintain a garden in the most unlikely of locations. The castle now includes an animal centre, gift shop and tearoom serving delicious locally sourced food and drinks, often using produce from the castle’s very own gardens.
