Just my opinion, I think if you come to Scotney Castle, you really should see the gardens.

The gardens are big, and there is a fair amount of walking to do, and on the way back, of course it is uphill!
We were here a bit off season for a lot of Flower's, but I have seen photo's when the Rhododendron's and Azalea's and other plant's are blooming at the same time, and it is a real picture.
I liked the garden in the ruins. The empty window's made nice frames for the garden, and there were garden seats to sit and enjoy the scene, or perhaps the Duck's on the Moat. I like the way they have used the quarry as a garden, instead of leaving it as an eyesore! The Boatshed is another nice spot, great reflection's and plenty of Tree's, this would be very nice for Autumn colours.
Altogether, a stunning garden, one of my favorite's!
