The mid-18th-century walled garden at Culzean Castle is situated one kilometre from the house and protected from salt-laden winds by tree planting. It is divided in two by a central wall and has ornamental gates dated 1786. In one section there are restored glasshouses, ornamental plantings and an early-20th-century grotto. Some fruit, vegetables and flowers for cutting are grown in the other section, which is distinguished by double herbaceous borders running the full length of the garden.
