It is a magical mystery tour of endless paths meandering under magnificent trees, unusual shrubs with a plethora of woodland bulbs and plants at your feet. Lift the branches of a Hamamelis mollis to find the startled heron take off from the pond and look up to the massive trunk of the Abies alba 100 feet up. From snowdrops to hellebores then trillium and bluebells, flowering shrubs and roses. The garden is at its best in May. The sculptures are by David Annand and Nigel Ross. Look out for the ten-foot teapot and the yew table ready for the Mad Hatter’s tea party!
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
