'Dunrobin Castle' in Golspie, Sutherland is a beautiful fairytale castle that I remember visiting on school days out many years ago. The gardens are perfectly manicured . The tall wooden obelisks have apple trees trained up them . The apple trees have also been carefully trained along the ground to form 'step over' trees.
I love the way the cypress are immacultely groomed into a' tear drop' shape leaning in towards the central fountain.
The castle has magnificent views over the Dornoch Firth towards Tain in Easter Ross.
Topped with blue sky and a reunion with old friends it truly was a day out to remember !
