Entry Fee

£4.  Accompanied children Free.

In 2007 a drystone wall was also built. The new garden within is laid out in an interpretation of the medieval style.

Raised beds and exedra contain a profusion of unusual culinary and medicinal herbs. Old roses and flowers of the medieval period surround the central herber. A rowan arch leads to an orchard of mostly historic fruit cultivars in a flowery mead.

A pretty walk takes you alongside a burn and through indigenous meadows and specimen trees.

Directions: Melgund Castle is situated three miles east of Aberlemno. Take the B9134 between Brechin and Forfar. Roughly half way and north of Aberlemno a small sign will direct you along a narrow road, through the farm, when you will see the castle on the left. Grid ref: No 5460956630.

Homemade Teas, Disabled Access, Dogs on Lead welcome.

Beneficiaries: Aberlemno Parish Church of Scotland 60%.
