Topiary Gardens in Scotland
EBTS returns to Scotland after 15 years to some of the finest topiary gardens around Aberdeenshire, Fife and Perthshire, revisiting the famous Palaces with their magnificent parterres and some previously unseen private gardens. The area is rich in formal gardens including Crathes with its fine yew hedges, Earlshall with its topiary chessmen, Drummond Castle Garden’s beautiful parterres and other less known gems, Balkaskie and House of Pitmuies. We shall also visit the recently restored Japanese garden at Cowden. The tour will be led by Charlotte Maclean and is four days staying at Kinnaird Castle, Brechin, the private home of the Duke and Duchess of Fife.
Our days will start and end at with hearty breakfasts and relaxed dinners after looking at gardens with special guided tours arranged. The tour included half board at Kinnaird Castle, three lunches and all garden visits.
We will meet at 2pm on Sunday 7th June and finish at 5pm on 10th June at Edinburgh airport. Transport to and from Scotland is not included. (Suggested flights and train times will be sent on interest).
As this is a private tour, we can’t fix the final price as it will be dependent on numbers booking, the guide range is between £650 and £525 (the balance being payable six weeks prior to departure).
