Treasured Places (18 June 2007)

Drummond Castle's formal garden was first established in the 17th century. Sculpture from the earliest phase of the garden can still be seen, including an elaborate multi-faced sundial, dated '1630'. The layout of the current garden was planned in the late 1820s. The overall design is that of a saltire cross, supplemented by beds in the form of crowns and geometric patterns.
