Falling for its isolated charm and hearing it was to be abandoned, she decided to save it.Having acquired the most northerly inhabited castle on the British mainland, The Queen Mother renovated and restored it and created the beautiful gardens you see today. For almost half a century she spent many happy summers here and shorter visits at other times of the year.Visit Scotland 5 StarsGreen Tourism GoldThe Castle and Gardens of Mey have held Visit Scotland's highest award of a 5 Star quality assurance grading every year since their first unannounced visit in 2007.
