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.

Ardveich House

Sleeps up to 10.

To check availability visit the Castles & Cottages website listing.

We think this house might have some of the best views in Scotland as it sits up on the hillside overlooking Loch Earn with Ben Vorlich standing guard on the southern shore, Ardveich is a traditional Scottish estate house and carries an atmosphere of welcome, history and tradition. It is in a very secluded spot with only the farm behind and then hills you are free to roam. The seclusion is a delight but you are well placed to enjoy the local village, restaurants a mere few miles away, fishing on the loch, water sports, a variety of water sports  or a visit to the Trossachs National Park. Historic Stirling is an easy day out or travel to the west coast for the day.


The interior is fresh and spacious with a particularly large sitting room with wood burner as well as a second TV/Family room with sofa bed. A delightful sun room is the spot to sit and soak up those marvellous views. A separate dining room is perfect for more formal evening meals although the spacious kitchen/dining room will readily and comfortable seat 10 as well. A downstairs WC and a utility room complete the ground floor making this a really lovely house for families or small groups.

Upstairs – four good sized bedrooms are serviced by two bathrooms


The garden is enclosed and some garden furniture and a BBQ mean you can extend your outdoor days and watch the sun set down the loch. A truly lovely house for a holiday and great value for the individuality and the views it has. One of those places you might just leave a little bit of your soul in those landscapes.
