The garden takes its cues from the surrounding Strathbogie landscape of rolling, tree and heather-clad hills. Divided by undulating hedges, the various parts of the garden are planted in an informal, cottage garden style and contain a mixture of the common place and many unusual plants. Grass paths lead from one section to another, and although the area around the cottage is level, there are also flower meadows on steep banks (not suitable for wheelchairs), leading down to the river Bogie. An organic vegetable garden lies behind one of the mixed borders and elsewhere there is a small orchard.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
