There are lots of woodland areas to walk around within the grounds of Glamis Castle, but there’s also a walled Italian garden. I love walled gardens, apart from the fact that the high walls protect the plants from the worst of the winter weather, they always feel so private and safe. Below is a view of the entrance to the garden.

Despite the fact that it was late September there was still plenty of interest in the garden, and quite a bit of colour.
There is of course a fabulous backdrop of mature conifers in the shape of the arboretum.
You can read more about Glamis Castle gardens here. The whole place is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
