Autumn wonders

Behold our gorgeous gardens and landscapes ablaze with colour this autumn


Autumn is a fantastic time to explore the Trust's gardens and landscapes. With summer fading, many of them are turning to rich shades of red and gold.

Marvel at Perthshire’s rich colours in the wooded gorge of Killiecrankie and along the banks of the River Braan at The Hermitage.

 Autumn Wonders 1

The Hermitage is home to some of the UK’s tallest trees.

Further north, top spots for autumn splendour include Aberdeenshire’s Crathes Castle and Drum Castle, or the tumbling slopes of Corrieshalloch Gorge National Nature Reserve in Ross-shire.

Autumn 2

Teeming with rare and exotic trees and shrubs, Argyll’s Crarae Garden is the perfect place for an autumnal amble, as is the tranquil Inveresk Lodge Garden in East Lothian.

For more of a challenge, head to Kintail, one of Scotland’s wildest areas.
