About Pitmedden Garden
Five miles of immaculate boxwood hedging create the intricate patterns that weave through Pitmedden Garden. Their original design was laid out by the 1st Baronet of Pitmedden in 1675, but the with plans lost in a fire in 1807, Edinburgh's Holyroodhouse formed the template for its reconstruction.
Over 80 varieties of apple trees give off fragrant blossom in the spring and rich pickings in the autumn, while the steady drip of Pitmedden's fountains is a refreshing sound when wandering through the gardens in the summer months.
About the area
Pitmedden village is one mile away from the gardens and has the nearest local supermarket.
A few miles further away is the ancient village of Tarves, thought to have been founded as a church settlement in 600AD.
Things to do

  • The local Tolquhon Gallery is located in an old Victorian farmhouse nearby and hosts regular exhibitions. In the summertime, get inspired by the sights and scents of the gardens, and sign up for one of their weekend workshops.

  • Step into a fairytale landscape at Fyvie Castle, just over 20 miles away. Not only do the sculpted turrets and fine tapestries look the part, but the castle is steeped in legends, and rumour has it, harbours the odd ghost or two.

  • Haddo House, near the ancient village of Tarves is a sprawling Georgian country mansion, set in an estate that would make a Jane Austen heroine swoon.
