Newton Barns Auchtermuchty KY14 7HR (John & Jess Anderson): The borders at Newton Barns are planted with choice shrubs, trees and rhododendrons. Central to the garden is a huge rockery and stream. Sweeping lawns and generous borders slope towards Pitmedden Wood and there are breathtaking views across the top of the garden towards the Lomond Hills. Newton Mains Auchtermuchty KY14 7HR (Tony and Ruth Lear): Confronted with the challenge of an exposed south facing site, visited frequently by deer and hares in search of a tasty snack, sheltered areas have been created and planted with a variety of trees, shrubs and perennials. Curving dry stone walls outline beds, pathways and seating areas that merge into the naturalised field. Wonderful views across the Eden Valley to the Lomond Hills.
