Photos: Wemyss Castle Gardens 2023

Friday the 26th of May.

The grounds at Wemyss Castle have been gardened formally since the 17th century, each generation introducing their own aesthetics and ideas. After the second world war the walled garden at Wemyss Castle became largely redundant. Since 1993 it has been lovingly overhauled and redesigned by Charlotte Wemyss.

The six-acre walled garden has become a symphony of spring and summer flowers. Clematis, roses and ornamental trees are the stars of the show supported by herbaceous planting, sweeping lawns, sculptural and architectural features which all work together to create a journey of striking colours, wonderful textures and an intoxicating scent.

Thank you to Charlotte and Michael Wemyss of that ilk for their hospitality.

  1. Charlotte,
    My name is Thomas McKinnon and I live in Orlando, Florida.
    My mother’s family are Wemyss and are distant relatives.
    I have never visited Scotland, but have plans for my wife and I to do so in the near future.
    We are aware that we can visit the gardens, but would very much like to meet relatives.
    Can this possibly be arranged?
