The walled garden at Stobshiel has recently lost all the box hedging due to blight. The garden has been redesigned with stone and gravel paths and soft edging. A large, formal lily pond now forms the focal point in front of the house. Through the walled garden, the paths lead you towards the greenhouse, potting shed and down to the cut-flower and vegetable garden. Outside the wall the garden is full of shrubs, roses, bulbs, trees, clematis and more. There are paths to wander around with plenty of seating. There is a large pond, another lily pond and a woodland garden with a burn running through. In May and June it is full of rhododendrons and azaleas.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
