The Scottish Snowdrop Festival 2017

The very popular Scottish Snowdrop Festival is returning to some of the best gardens and woodlands all over Scotland from 28 January - 12 March 2017. 


A wide range of over 50 gardens throughout Scotland – all promising dazzling displays of snowdrops – are taking part in the festival this year with some of these venues opening exclusively for the festival. Participating gardens and woodlands can be entered for a small ticket price, a donation, or for free.


Gardens taking part in Aberdeenshire this year:


Bruckhills Croft


Bruckhills Croft is a country cottage garden with a collection of 320+ named snowdrops arranged in small groups throughout the garden. Visitors can also explore several garden rooms, seating areas, or a cuppa and a cake in the pavilion.

Fyvie Castle


Fyvie Castle is a 5-star Castle located in the heart of Aberdeenshire and is a sterling example of Scottish Baronial architecture. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll and explore the gardens, estate and discover snowdrops hidden around the woods and by the loch. The 18th-century walled garden has been redeveloped as a garden of Scottish fruits and vegetables, and this, along with the American Garden and other parkland areas is open all year.
