The Barrmill Conservation Group
This large woodland garden is carved from a 19th-century whinstone quarry and situated within an 1890’s parkland, once known for the quoiting green provided for the village thread mill and ironstone pit workers of that time. Enhancement of the gardens began in 2011 by volunteers with assistance from Beechgrove Garden. Features include enchanted woodland walks, the Vale Burn, views of the Dusk Water, a restored 19th-century cholera pit aka ‘the Deid Man’s Plantin’, wish trees, wishing wells, doors to the Elfhame, guided walks, nature trail and traditional Ayrshire quoits game. The woodland backdrop is complemented by an understore of natural planting throughout.
