Attraction in Crieff
A mile of beech-lined avenue leads to a formidable ridge-top tower house. Enter through the woven iron portcullis and suddenly revealed is a magnificent Italianate parterre. These are Scotland's most important formal gardens and 'among the finest in Europe'. First laid out in the early 17th century and re-designed and terraced in the early 19th century, the gardens you see today were replanted during the 1950s, preserving features such as the ancient yew hedges and the copper beech trees planted by Queen Victoria to commemorate her visit in 1842.
