We were supposed to be auditioning a piano in Crieff, but there was this charming high street…

Full of beautiful shops (Gordon & Durward Confectionery Shop, Crieff)

And stunning art (Strathearn Gallery, Crief)

Of course, all that strolling and admiring works up an appetite.

How could we pass up that lovely dog-friendly restaurant? (There were waffles…)

But then we really were going to look for that piano. Until we saw a little sign for Drummond Castle Gardens, and just had to go…

Down the mile-long tunnel of trees…

Past the castle’s swan-filled lake…

Through the gateway…

Past the castle…

And into the most incredible gardens…

We wandered paths between fountains presided over by naked marble guys…

Through the Woodland Walk with humorous wood sculptures…

Until we found a small hitchhiker waiting for a princess to pucker up.
He was adorable, but I’ve already found my prince, so I stopped kissing toads a long time ago. (Still looking for that piano though…)

Other princesses can apply at Drummond Castle & Gardens, Crieff.
