A RARE chance to visit Gordonstoun school is being offered this weekend.

The school is opening its grounds from 2pm until 5pm on Sunday, June 26, as part of the Gardens Open Day.

It's the only time of the year when the general public are allowed to visit Gordonstoun's campus.

Gordonstoun is famous for educating the royal family, but its history dates much further back, including the 18th century Georgian home of the first marquis of Huntly.

The school gardens consists of an ornamental lake and an apple orchard.

Visitors will be given a guided tour of the grounds and can stroll down the 'silent walk' to the 17th century kirk, where former students including HRH Prince Philip would have worshipped.

Gardeners can tell you about working alongside 450 young people, while some students will be on hand to explain points of interest.

Entry is £8 (cash only) and includes tea/coffee and homemade treats. Please enter by the West Gate.

Scotland's Garden Scheme's purpose is to raise money for charity by encouraging, promoting and supporting garden openings, whilst making the whole experience inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable for all involved.
