The locations of Scotland’s most beautiful gardens, including those in the North East, have been put on a new map to help encourage tourism across the country.
Discover Scottish Gardens has produced a new printed map of more than 130 horticultural attractions including plant nurseries, private and public gardens, woodlands, and castles.
In the North East, locations such Haddo House, Castle Fraser , Crathes Castle, and Drum Castle are included.
Other attractions included on the map are Attadale Gardens on the west coast, Dunvegan Castle in Skye, and Quoys of Houton in Orkney.
Catherine Erskine, chair of Discover Scottish Gardens said: “Our brand new map of Scotland will help locals and tourists discover the beautiful and varied gardens the Highlands and Islands have to offer.
“We want people to be inspired by Scotland’s breathtaking scenery, and learn more about our diverse climate and plant collections that thrive here.
“Scottish gardens are a huge asset, and we continually strive to maximise on the potential to grow their popularity.
“The new map will equip visitors with a list of some of the best gardens in the region, helping them make the most of their visit, or for locals, discover something new right on their doorstep.
“They can even create their own garden route within Scotland.
“With the amazing weather we have been experiencing recently, now is the perfect time to pick up a map and go exploring.”
The new Discover Scottish Gardens maps are available now from tourist information centres, hotels, visitor attractions and more across the country.
