There's no better way to clear your mind and find some peace than by taking a walk amongst nature. The Ellon Castle Gardens have provided such respite since 1715, although until recently the garden was a secret, all walled up and invisible even to the town's residents!

There's an abundance of wildlife to spot here, from red squirrels and bats to buzzards and bees. Enjoy the ambiance of the ancient English yew trees as you absorb the history around every corner. You can even explore the ruin of Ardgith Castle, which dates right back to the 1400s.

See the sun shimmer across shaded pathways, meet the various volunteers on-site, all with stories to tell, and come away rested, thanks to all that nature! Just keep it quiet, huh? It can still be our little secret.
