‘We are really looking forward to an exciting season at Castle Kennedy Gardens. The spring buds are starting to appear and will be quickly followed by the beautiful blooms of our azaleas and rhododendrons. During the winter we have carried out further conservation work to restore our sculptured land forms and we’ve also relocated the popular Bird Hide to maximise new sightings of wildfowl, resident birds and wildlife’ explained Lady Stair. ‘We look forward to welcoming visitors and hope you enjoy many of the exciting events we have planned for the season.’
The Gardens are now open daily
