With 6 acres of land, Dairsie has plenty of space for the kids to play, and the main meadow area at the front of the castle is an ideal space for a marquee. There is a small woodland area around the back of the castle reaching the river Eden at the bottom. Directly behind the castle is a walled Herb Garden containing edible herbs and also a strip of fragrant lavender. Directly in front of the castle is the open Garage and Watch Tower looking out onto the garden and neighbouring meadows. Tucked away behind the Watch Tower is a small orchard of apple and plum trees.
