Drummond Castle Gardens is one of Europe's and Scotland's most important and impressive formal gardens. Located in Perthshire near Crieff, it dates back to the 17th Century. The gardens were redesigned and terraced in the 19th Century. The formal gradens that you see today were replanted in the 1950s but preserve many of the original features, the ancient yew hedges and the remaining beech tree planted by Queen Victoria, commemorating her visit in 1842. The Formal Gardens have featured in many films and adverts, most notably in the United Artist feature film Rob Roy. Visitors are welcome to visit the gardens, although the castle remains closed to the public.

Kim Proven, LETi chairwoman, said: “We are delighted with our bid result.

“Not just for our community contribution towards the £24,900 total raised for Air Ambulance and not just to enhance the BLiSS trail story but for the collective ownership and sense of achievement by a community working together towards a common goal.

“It shows what can be done.

“A huge thank you to everyone who supported this and hats off to Crieff Succeeds for an innovative and exciting summer campaign culminating in a generous donation to a charity much valued by rural communities.”

LETi collaborated with Loch Earn residents and community groups to fund a collective bid for the BLiSS trail in advance of the auction at Crieff Hydro on October 9.

SCAA thanked the bidders of the cowches for helping to raise money to fund the charity.

Nick Harvey, SCAA’s director of fundraising and communications, said: “We’re really heartened and grateful to companies, groups and organisations everywhere for supporting our aeromedical retrieval service.

“SCAA is the people’s helicopter, and having the support of so many is humbling, we can’t thank the community enough for their unwavering support of this life-saving service.”

BLiSS is the second art trail the two cowches have called home after being stationed in Crieff over the summer as part of a temporary instillation designed to attract tourists to the Perthshire town.

Eleven of the life-sized Highland cow benches were dotted around the Strathearn town attracting thousands of visitors to the area.
