The sloping walled garden at Brechin Castle has a unique undulating outline and was largely constructed in 1777. There are two additional semicircular areas, one of which was built after 1868. The other contains early-19th-century glasshouses. There is an upper terrace walk with an early-20th-century yew hedge along its length. The extensive planting consists mostly of ornamental conifers and shrubs, both in lawns and in shrub beds.
