The garden on the Mount is pretty spectacular. It’s maintained by a team of four gardeners, who do an amazing job at keeping the garden is good condition. This even involves some abseiling down from the castle battlements to the higher garden tiers.
The weather on the Mount had gotten fairly miserable by the time we got to the gardens, and my landscape photos of the area ended up looking very dark and dreary… so this post will consist of a few closeups of the plants growing in the different parts of the gardens.
During WWII a number of pillboxes were built on the Mount to serve as look out posts in case of German invasion.
