KILBRYDE Castle will open its gardens this month on behalf of the Scotland’s Gardens chairty fundraising scheme.

The Kilbryde Castle gardens cover some twelve acres and are situated above the Ardoch Burn and below the castle.

The gardens are split into three parts: formal, woodland and wild.

Cream teas and a plant stall will also be there when the gardens open on Sunday, September 16 from 2PM to 5PM. 

Admissions will cost £5, with accompanied children entering for free. 

The local Leighton Library will recieve 60% of the proceeds - with the rest remaining with the Scottish Garden's Scheme.
