Blair Castle Garden: Hercules Garden is a walled enclosure of about 9 acres (3.65 hectares) developed by the 2nd Duke of Atholl in the mid 18th century. Named after the life-sized statue of Hercules which overlooks it, the garden incorporates landscaped ponds and plantings. Other features include statues, urns, a Chinese bridge and a folly, as well as productive fruit trees, vegetable beds and herbaceous borders.

"Grab a free trail map and take a stroll in some 2,500 acres of Blair Castle Gardens. Pass through the 9 acre walled Hercules Garden with an orchard of more than one hundred fruit trees, before weaving along to St Brides Kirk. As well as enjoying cream teas and castle views, make sure you take a nosey at the two paths only open to the public during snowdrop season."
