Pitmedden is a seventeenth century walled garden on two levels. Original garden pavilions with ogival roofs look down on an elaborate spectacle of four rectangular boxwood parterres flanked by fine herbaceous borders and espalier trained apple trees on south and west facing granite walls. An avenue of yew obelisks runs from east to west and up to 30,000 bedding plants add to the wow factor of this immaculately kept formal garden.
On the A920, one mile west of Pitmedden Village and fourteen miles north of Aberdeen.
