Entrance to Gardens at Guthrie Castle
Entrance to Gardens at Guthrie Castle
This gate has a date of 1642 on the top and leads into the wonderful walled garden opposite the castle. The yett, which was the original entrance to the Castle, now hangs at the entry to the wild flower garden. There are two gardens adjacent to each other - the walled garden and the wild garden. No one knows the exact date of the construction of the horseshow-shaped historic walled garden. It was built either at the time of the construction of the original tower or by monks in the 16th Century. The garden contains many species of flowers and floribunda, the most notable are the 160-year yew hedges shaped in the sign of the Celtic Cross.
