The garden was designed by Glasgow Botanical Gardens in 1900 and has been evolved by the family, ensuring there is something enticing all year round. Sweeping lawns overlooking the Firth of The Clyde provide a canvas for a 70m serpentine herbaceous border, sculptured hedges, mixed beds, knot garden, smelly garden and bog garden; the walled garden has a winter border, espaliered fruit trees, peach house, vegetables, fruit and tearoom. Seasonal interest includes: carpets of snowdrops, blue bells, daffodils, early rhododendrons, camellias, magnolias, peonies. Many unusual trees prolong summer interest e.g. Eucryphia, Embothrium, Cornus kousa Chinensis. Roses, hydrangeas, herbaceous plants, candyfloss aroma from falling leaves of Cercidiphyllum japonicum Pendulum maintain colour and fragrance and keep the inspiration till late autumn. Plant cuttings available for purchase.
