Scottish Tree Festival: Champion Trees, guided walk

Date: 11 October 2021
Price: £4.50, including a hot drink and a slice of cake in the tearoom. Admission to the gardens is paid separately.

Many of our wonderful trees are champions, reaching incredible heights and diameters. Join our gardening team as they take you on a tour of some of the most spectacular specimens from around the world like our Araucaria araucana (Monkey Puzzle) which was planted in 1849 and is the Scottish Champion for height, or our Cryptomeria japonica (Japanese Cedar) with its champion girth! The planting of our wonderful collection of trees was meticulously planned and added to over 300 years to provide spectacular colour and interest through Autumn so there will be plenty to take in. When you return to the castle at the end of your walk, you’ll be able to enjoy a hot drink and a delicious slice of cake or sweet treat. It’s included in the ticket price! Admission to the gardens is paid separately.
