About Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life

Pitmedden Garden and Museum of Farming Life has been owned and maintained by the National Trust for Scotland since 1952. Be amazed at over 30,000 annual bedding plants that make up the colourful designs in the parterres and visit the Museum of Farming Life, which brings the agricultural past to life.

Where is Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life located?

The garden is just off the A920, 1 mile west of Pitmedden village and 14 miles north of Aberdeen City.

What style of garden is Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life?

Brilliant design and meticulous maintenance give Pitmedden Garden its unique charm. With almost 6 miles of clipped box hedging, the parterres at the heart of the garden are a masterpiece of intricate patterns and sparkling colours. The Great Garden dates back to 1675 when it was originally laid out by Sir Alexander Seton. In the 1950s the Trust re-created the garden based on 17th-century plans of the gardens at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. An orchard planted in 2014 is packed with more than 200 fruit trees. With honeysuckle and jasmine also casting their scent in the garden, Pitmedden really is a delight for the senses.

What can guests enjoy at Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life?

The heart of the property is the formal walled parterre garden with surrounding woods which are a haven for birds and other wildlife. The adjacent Museum of Farming Life boasts an extensive collection of domestic and agricultural artefacts. Pitmedden's award-winning tearoom offers delicious bakes and light lunches and the gift shop has a great selection of gifts, as well as seasonal garden produce when available, including Pitmedden's delicious apple juice and jelly. Have a look out for the events of the season, there is plenty to do over the summer and don't miss out on Pitmedden's famous Apple harvest festival at the end of September!

Other information

Dogs are welcome on the woodland estate but not in the walled garden (except for assistance dogs).
