Teazels, cowslips, toadflax, vetch ... Discover the wildflower paintings of contemporary landscape artist, Nessie Ramm, displayed both inside the old castle and doors and as a trail in the garden.

With a display in the old castle and a trail in the garden, 'Changed Priorities Ahead' showcases the work of nature artist, Nessie Ramm. Nessie paints our native wildflowers with exquisite detail as they thrive undisturbed on roundabouts, slip roads and laybys. With metal road signs as her 'canvas', her large-scale art renders visible the wildness and value of these unloved spaces. This display is a call to put away our strimmers and re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world. Entry to the display and trail is included in the general admission.

This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.

Aimed at adults but suitable for families

Part of the display is on the first floor of the old castle.

Scotney Castle Events

Join us for a week long programme of green-themed walks, talks and tours for Great Big Green Week.

This Great Big Green Week, come and meet the rangers who survey for snakes. Reptiles are an important part of the Scotney ecosystem and we regularly conduct surveys to monitor reptile numbers and species.

Join one of our estate guides on a tour around Scotney's woods and parklands to see seasonal flora and fauna and learn about the history of Scotney. This tour is included in your entry to Scotney.

Our senior gardener is leading this free 'walk and talk' event on growing cut flowers as part of Scotney's Great Big Green Week Festival.
