There was little shelter and it has taken some time to plant up the shelter and mixed hedging surrounding the site, but where the ground had been cultivated, plants have flourished. On the left as you drive in, there is a large wildlife pond, dug when work began, in the hope of containing some of the abundant water. Take the right fork as you approach the house and you will drive through the most mature, more formal planting; a lawn surrounded by borders of mixed shrubs. Drive into the yard, where the old rubble walls have all been rebuilt. On the other side of the drive is new planting around and above the pond, all reflecting the owner's love of trees and shrubs, particularly ericaceous-rhododendrons, azaleas, acers and interesting trees but there are herbaceous plants, too.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
