We explored the house, castle ruins and gardens over 5 hours on a Sunday. We took a picnic and a frisbee. Very nice walks and some great views. Well worth a visit, we are national trust members so made the most of a sunny Sunday.

Spending a couple of hours walking in the grounds of Scotney Castle is a very pleasant way of spending a sunny afternoon in the Spring or Summer. Take food with you if you intend to eat as the cafe selection is not that great.
