The spectacular views over Fife to Perthshire and Angus, and the large flooded quarry full of fish (and the occasional otter) and planted with impressive marginals, make this garden very special.
Flights of old stone steps, cliffs, huge boulders, exotic ferns and mature trees form a backdrop for carpets of primroses, bluebells, spring bulbs and woodland plants like trilliums, camassia, meconopsis and colourful primulas. There are different rhododendrons in flower in the garden from March until July. In front of the house is a charming, mature walled garden with traditional cottage-garden planting. Next to the house is the St Andrews Pottery where George will be demonstrating his pottery skills for those who need a break from the garden!
