Castle Kennedy Gardens

Castle Kennedy Gardens have something to admire whatever the season. Why not discover the riotous colours and scents in the Walled Garden, marvel at the scale of the two-acre Round Pond full of lilies, or make your way through the magnificent avenues of trees to reach the splendour of the Sunken and Heather Gardens at Lochinch Castle?

From stunning features to exotic plants and trees, sculptured landforms, magnificent walks and popular bird hides, the Gardens are a hidden treasure in South West Scotland and a perfect haven for relaxing and exploring.

After a leisurely walk in the grounds why not join us at our fabulous Cafe, offering unparalleled views of the Castle Kennedy ruins throughout the season. Choose from an ever changing selection of soups, jacket potatoes, toasted sandwiches, cakes and drinks. Using locally sourced fresh ingredients in traditional recipes from Lochinch Castle, delicious home-made food is available for all the family.
