This interesting garden was started in 1995 and contains a collection of unusual shrubs and small trees which are growing well. Our aim has been to create different informal gardens around a Galloway farm house, leading down to a lochan. Above the lochan there is a sweet cottage, used for holiday retreats. It has its own interesting garden. In 1996 a three acre aboretum was planted as a shelter belt and it now contains some rare oak trees.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
