Quintessential Bed and Breakfasts
Hercules Garden, Blair Castle

The grounds at Blair Castle were laid out by the 2nd Duke of Atholl in the 18th Century. In the hollow east of the castle, he made a magnificent 9 acre walled garden. A statue of Hercules is placed above the garden with a spectacular view across its sloping ground and interlocking ponds. In summer, the glory of this garden is the wide herbaceous bed that runs the length of the south- facing wall and is divided by buttresses of yew. This beautiful and productive garden is planted with more than 100 fruit trees, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Other features of interest include a red and turquoise Chinoiserie-style bridge, statues, urns, a folly and two heather-thatched swan and duck huts. There is also an excellent collection of conifers in nearby Diana’s Grove which is also the home of the UK’s 2nd tallest tree.
