You’re Invited to Winton Castle’s Spring Gardens Open Day

Sunday 14 April 2024 (12 noon – 4.30 pm)

You’ll be able to see the wild gardens round the castle awash with daffodils, and the walled garden and terraced gardens alive with spring flowers, all open under Scotland’s Garden Scheme.

Profits from the admission to the gardens will be going to the Scotland’s Garden Scheme charities.

  • Enjoy the grounds, terraced gardens and walled garden.
  • Join garden tours by Winton’s Head Gardener.
  • Learn about Winton’s history from guided Castle Tours: you’ll hear about Winton’s Scottish Renaissance ceilings and chimneys, and the castle’s links to the powerful Seton family, Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scots, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Elgin Marbles.
  • Refuel with teas and light lunches at Cafe Winton.

Well-behaved dogs are also welcome outside on leads.
