Dirleton Castle and Gardens - HES
Cross the deep moat guarded by high walls and an imposing tower and discover stories of sieges, nobility and witchcraft in this stunning castle. Direlton is also however celebrated for the beauty of its grounds and idyllic setting. The gardens that grace the castle grounds today date from the late 1800s and early 1900s.Fragrant herbaceous borders greet you as you enter the estate. These belong to the beautiful north garden, which dates from the Arts and Crafts movement of the 1920s The formal Victorian west garden – with its foliage plants and geraniums – was faithfully reconstructed in 1993 and is at its most impressive in September. This year one of the garden’s 24 year old monkey puzzle tree’s finally produced cucumber shaped cones showing it to be a male.
