I am a garden person, so that is what my 5 stars is based upon. Throughout our five day trip to different parts of Great Britain, these were the most beautiful gardens that we viewed. It was amazing to me that they were still in bloom, since we were there in very cool weather in September. We were on a day trip from a cruise and did not have near enough time to explore all the different areas. I was by myself walking around and saw a wooden door in a stone wall. Of course, I had to open it. It led to the wild garden, a woods with a walking path. It was so inviting but just not enough time. The castle itself is very interesting because it is still an actual home. One views articles of interest that were collected by the family over generations. It does make the experience different than going into a castle that is a museum. The dowager herself was there that day but we didn't get to see her. Cawdor castle is not covered by the Scotland Explorer pass.
