Whitewin House and gardens have an interesting history. It was the first house to be built on Golf Course Road by the Tate & Lyle sugar refining family in the late 1800's. It has a prime location with stunning views over the Firth of Clyde and to Ailsa Craig and the Kintyre Peninsula. There are four separate gardens: the Ailsa Craig Garden at the front; The Gable Garden; the Central Rear Garden and the Rear Golf Course Garden. The layout is formal with lawns, borders, shrubs, rockeries and statuary - complementing the Victorian architecture of Whitewin.
Saturday/Sunday, 4/5 August & Saturday/Sunday, 11/12 August, 1pm - 5pm. The owners will also be at home on Monday 6th August for anyone unable to make the weekend!
Six acre formal garden, attributed to Gertrude Jekyll, surrounding Greywalls Hotel, with stunning views over East Lothian and the Forth. Late season colour as featured in the Beechgrove Garden in September 2015. Highlights of the garden are the walls: straight walls and curved walls which create rooms and vistas, and radiating paths which link entrances and exits. Everywhere there are places to sit, in sun and in shade.

A group of four gardens will be opening in the beautiful Borders town of Peebles. The gardens are all different, varying in their size and the varieties of plants grown. You will find well established herbaceous borders, mature shrubs and trees, roses and climbers, and plantings in shade and moist ground. The gardeners are all enthusiastic amateurs who are passionate about their gardens and would love to share them with you.
