Description of Garden

Woodland garden with bridges and waterfalls containing 100s of rhododendrons, camellias, Magnolias with an understory of perennials and wild flowers. Walled garden with trial beds for new hybrids and plantings around the 1747 Georgian house including one of the world's largest collections of dwarf rhododendrons and azaleas.

History Of Garden

The beautiful Georgian mansion was built shortly after the '45 Rebellion in 1748 with money provided for putting down the rebellion. Prince Charlie is believed to have hidden in woods nearby.

The garden has developed over the years since 1919 when the late Euan Cox returned from a trip to Burma. Euan and son Peter have continued to add to the collection and Peter's son, Kenneth, has now joined his father, so all three generations have contributed both plants and experience from their expeditions out East.
