Described as one of the best newly created gardens
in recent times, it is hard to believe just twenty years ago there
existed only bog, rushes and gorse.
The focal point of this outstanding 12 acre
garden centres round two small lakes with magnificent views across
Luce Bay and to the Mull of Galloway. The warming effects of the
Gulf Stream allow exotic and tender plants to flourish from around
the southern hemisphere, and large collections of rare trees and
shrubs may be discovered.
This is a garden for all seasons, where every
effort has been made to create colour not only in the Spring when
beautiful banks of azaleas and rhododendrons dazzle the visitor,
but throughout the summer months when the plantsman may discover
many rare gems ending the season with a flourish of hydrangeas.
A peaceful haven with winding paths and seats, through woodland
walks, where surprises may be found round every corner. Do not be
surprised if you should discover red squirrels, peacocks, ducks
and many other forms of wildlife including a thriving bird population.
New features are the creation of more water where the visitor may discover fascinating new sculptures.
A new 17 acre moorland walk has opened up where visitors may walk round mown grass paths and view the native species of flora and fauna. Every effort is being made to conserve over 120 recorded species of grasses and flowers. Contributions of £1 in the box at the start of the walk are much appreciated to help and maintain the upkeep of this exciting new venture.
A small thriving nursery has many of the plants
seen growing in the garden.
