Description of Garden

There are 56 acres of gardens, being a combination of the formal and informal that is unique to Scotland. There are formal terraces at the south front which look over the south lawn and lake to the woodland garden. On the north side there is lawn with mature trees at the other side of which is a magnificent gateway leading to the formal garden and herbaceous borders. Sadly the walled garden is no longer open to the public. Wonderful stables, described as perfection.

History Of Garden

Kinross designed the four formal terrace gardens which are planted in Edwardian style. The lake, the shape of the landscaping and the Chinese bridge probably all date from the 18th century when the original house was built.
