Gordon Castle Estate
Gordon Castle Estate is stunning! The main event site is set within the manicured gardens of the Castle grounds and will be surrounded by the woodland walks, tennis courts, nooks and crannies and only 100m away – the awesome Walled Garden Restaurant!.
The Walled Garden Restaurant will be open Wednesday & Thursday 11am – 4pm offering lunchtime sustenance (sample menu), along with offering refreshments during special events held on the terrace. The extensive garden in which the restaurant is situated is a hidden gem, the Walled Garden is one of Scotland’s best kept secrets. At almost eight acres in size it is one of the oldest and largest kitchen gardens in Britain and has been lovingly restored to its former glory with a modern design by world famous designer Arne Maynard.
For those wanting to walk a little further, the village of Fochabers is situated nearby but far enough away to feel completely rural. In the village, you will find quaint shops, bars, hotels, museums, antique shops, an award winning chip shop and historic buildings and churches…all within walking distance.
