The water adds to the tranquillity of the garden throughout the year. In the spring, rhododendrons and azaleas provide a show of colour and scent. In the autumn, acers and cherries provide a riot of vivid colours while the Cercidiphyllum leaves have the aroma of burnt sugar. There are still many facets from the original Japanese garden in place which include lanterns, a tea house, humpback bridges, stepping stones as well as specialist trees and shrubs of Japanese origin. Limited disabled access due to gravel paths and steps.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
