Came across the water gardens by chance (although realised afterwards they are well signposted). Lovely tranquil setting and well worth a visit whilst staying at Stobo Castle.

Worth a visit to see the waterfall and beautiful garden. I can only imagine how colourful it would be in the summer.

This is a lovely little garden in the grounds of #sostobo Stobo Castle. Drop in for a cup of tea while you are there. I promise you will become addicted to the spa treatments ;)

My friend and I took a gentle stroll around the gardens our last morning of our visit and was overwhelmed by the colours of the season, it really was a fantastic start to our day.

Gorgeous little place in the grounds of Stobo Castle. But why has nobody mentioned that the garden is, in fact, private land and reserved for the use of guests at the Stobo Castle Spa? I was so embarrassed when a lovely gent mowing the grass...More

I think that the Japanese Gardens are for the guests of Stobo Castle. I am not aware that one can visit them separately. It may be best to contact Stobo Castle to ask.
