Day and Season tickets are now available to buy online for the restart of opening in 2021
Drummond Gardens is a registered charity (SC03964), so it is possible for UK taxpayers to use Gift Aid to add an extra £2.50 to the Trust without any extra cost to you. This can be done on arrival or when buying tickets online.
However the Gardens afford marvellous views of the buildings and surrounding countryside.
Wheelchair users will not be charged admission to the gardens. Please note the information below regarding access issues. Registered carers are admitted free of charge.
The gardens are built into the side of a steep hillside and several flights of steep steps provide the main access for visitors. It is therefore important that anyone with limited mobility is aware of this fact. If you do not feel up to using the steps it is possible to ask at the ticket office for directions to the entrance at the bottom of the garden. We have given serious consideration on the best way to provide access to the gardens for visitors who need to use a wheelchair.
On arrival in your car, please drive to the castle courtyard (signposted for wheelchair user parking) and ticket office. Your driver will be able to purchase tickets and obtain advice on how to get into the gardens from the potting shed access drive, where there is also a dedicated parking area. They will be given a garden map showing the best route around the garden for a wheelchair or buggy user. Please note that the gravel paths require a strong pusher and our suggested route is along firmer, grass paths. There is also a garden viewing area near the ticket office, which can be accessed upon request. Lavatory facilities available.

Drummond Gardens are available to view with our Garden Plan. The many varieties of trees and shrubs are identified including the Copper Beech planted by Queen Victoria in 1842.
Enjoy a short Woodland Walk in Daggan Wood, with wonderful views of the Castle and Keep. Access to the walk is from the Gardens
It is usually possible to purchase cold drinks and ice cream from the ticket office. Our ice cream is made locally by Stewart Tower. This award-winning company is situated near Dunkeld and is about 30 minutes’ drive from the gardens. Why not visit their ice cream parlour?
We have provided picnic benches for customers use. If you require a hot lunch, or if the weather is not suitable for al fresco, there are tearooms, pubs and restaurants in nearby villages and Crieff. Visit our links page to find out more about them.
Drummond Gardens are dog friendly. We do ask dog owners to respect other garden visitors by
Keeping their dogs on a lead at all times
Clearing up any dog mess and disposing of it in a suitable manner
We also ask dog owners not to leave their dogs in unventilated cars, especially during warm weather. A water bowl should be available near the ticket office. If you can’t see it, just ask and we will be happy to assist.
