The outstanding feature of this three-acre garden is the Victorian Fernery, a magnificent gilded structure fed by natural spring waters and housing many fern species, including Britain’s oldest exotic fern, a 1,000 year old Todea babara or king fern. Rare and unusual species await the visitor wandering through the original garden ‘rooms’ while the stables and coach house ruins feed the imagination with memories of long-lost times. The garden is generally well labelled and contains a plant hunters’ trail. New for 2018 is a climate change biotape.

Directions: Three miles south of Rothesay on A844. Close to the picturesque Ascog Bay. Bus every half hour Rothesay - Kilchattan.

1 April - 31 October, 10am - 5pm (2019)
Admission £5.00, children free.
· Donation to SGS Beneficiaries.

Other details: Restricted mobility parking at the top of the drive (close to the house). Personal assistance available for disabled access to the Fernery.
