Roll back the centuries on a visit to the elegant Georgian House of Dun, in Angus, overlooking the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve. Formal terraced gardens, a Victorian walled garden and a wooded den offer a long season of colour, in a relaxing and beautiful setting. Take a stroll in the Den of Dun – a narrow gorge where cascades and waterfalls flow down past the castle ruins. It’s not uncommon to see roe deer, red squirrels and even otters along the way. The basin itself features vast gull-marked mudflats, which stretch to the sea. During winter, tens of thousands of pink-footed geese arrive en route from the Arctic.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you
Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.
If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.
Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
