The enchanting garden of Broughton House in Kirkcudbright’s historic High street was designed and maintained by the artist E A Hornel between 1901 and 1933. With its narrow winding paths and series of secluded compartments, you can feel the intimate and quite magical atmosphere that prevails throughout this garden. The snowdrops within the garden provided inspiration for some of Hornel’s best known paintings and hellebores provide much needed colour at this time of year. The garden is open for the Snowdrop Festival from 5th February to 16th March 2018, Monday to Friday, 11am to 4pm. Entry via the garden gate is by donation.
