Drum Castle with its Garden of Historic Roses is a remarkably peaceful corner. Based in the Walled Garden, built around 1780, it is divided into four quadrants, each containing a design from one of the last four centuries together with roses from that period. The tea and floribunda roses seen today are the products of years of hybridising. Seven groups of roses are featured, from the historic Gallica group to the extensive range of 20th century hybrid shrub roses. Associated with the roses are herbaceous plants of each period - ranging from the simple 17th Century herbs to today´s exotic flowers.
