Cluny House Gardens, Cluny House, Aberfeldy, Perthshire, PH15 2JT

    Cluny House Gardens are a secluded, unique woodland garden situated in the heart of Scotland, overlooking the scenic Strathtay valley.

    This 2.4 hectare Himalayan/North American woodland garden was planted and developed by the late Bobby and Betty Masterton from 1950.

    A feature of Cluny House Gardens is the natural appearance, with many woodland plants regenerating and expanding freely beneath a canopy of rhododendrons, acers, rowans and birches. Giant Himalayan lilies, blue poppies, exotic arisaemas, skunk cabbages and copious numbers of candelabra primulas grow in profusion in the marvellous leaf litter and acidic soil. No chemicals are used in the garden and weeding is carried out by hand to avoid disturbing interesting seedlings and allowing some native plants their place in the garden.

    Look out for the extensive collection of Asiatic primulas, the Wellingtonia which has the widest girth of a conifer in the UK and the red squirrels.
