Historic Whitewin House was built for Baronet Henry Tate of Tate and Lyle. The House stands in one acre of formal Victorian Garden redesigned over a five-year period, in the form of an English Manor House Garden, which of course, comes with its challenges because of its coastal location. The rockeries, beautiful scalloped lawns, and the plethora of statuary, all compliment the use of authentic Victorian bedding plants, trees and shrubs, ideally mirroring the ambience and grandeur of the house interior. Whitewin House is fortunate in having the prime position in Golf Course Road, having been the first house built there, standing majestically overlooking the Firth of Clyde, Ailsa Craig, Arran and the Kintyre Peninsula.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
