The gates of Brechin Castle’s gardens will be open to the public for one day next month to raise money for charity.

The uniquely curving walls of the garden are just the first of many delightful surprises in store for members of the public.

The luxurious blend of ancient and modern plantings is the second.

Find charm and splendour in the wide gravelled walks, secluded small paths and corners.

The gardens will be open to the public on Sunday, May 3, from 2 to 5pm to raise funds for good causes under Scotland’s Gardens open for charity events.

The money raised from the event is going to the Dalhousie Day Centre, the Unicorn Preservation Society and Scotland’s Gardens’ designated charities.

May sees the rhododendrons and azaleas hit the peak of their flowering to wonderful effect in the gardens; and with complementary under-planting and a framework of great and beautiful trees to set the collection in the landscape.

This is a lovely garden at any time of year and a knockout in the spring.

There will be homemade teas and plant stall.

Admission is £5 for adults, £4 for OAPs and accompanied children go free. There is partial disabled access and dogs are allowed provided they are on leads.
