The gates of Ellon Castle Gardens will open on Sunday to members of the public for the 2nd annual Family Open Day.
The Open Day will begin at 1pm with ever popular guided tours leaving at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm sharp.
Admission is free and visitors can also take part in a Treasure Hunt or enjoy live music from the Ythan Fiddlers.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day and for the younger ones there will be a bouncy castle and a children’s quiz.
It’s a rare opportunity to visit the venue which is currently being renovated and revitalized as part of a long-term plan to turn it into a major tourist attraction for the area.
The gardens can be accessed on foot either via the entrance from Ellon Health Centre (AB41 9JH for satnav users) or via Castle Road (crossing the Deer Park).
