Over the last two years there have been big changes in the garden and thanks to two very talented friends, and the arrival this summer of a wonderful new part time gardener, it has changed the feel of the garden and we now have interest into late summer. Half the lawn has been given over to wild flowers and there is a new mini stumpery along with some more unusual plants. The river Carron flows around the edge of the garden and the old Amat Caledonian Forest is close by. Large specimen trees surround the house, plus many new ones planted in the policies in the last few years. There are several herbaceous borders, rhododendrons, trees and shrubs all set in a large lawn. It is possible to go on a short woodland and river walk and you may see red squirrels which were reintroduced some years ago and are often in and around the garden. Champion Trees: Abies Procera, Noble Fir
