Craigieburn House, by Moffat DG10 9LF
Janet and Peter McGowan
T:07557 928648
A beautiful and varied five-acre plant lovers' garden in a natural location in scenic Moffatdale. Meconopsis, trilliums, rhododendrons, magnolias, arisaemas, bamboos, hoherias and many more types of plants flourish in the shelter of mature woodland. Garden Manager, Datenji Sherpa has recreated a Himalayan gorge with native plants where the Craigie Burn tumbles down through a series of waterfalls. Candelabra primulas, rodgersias, cardiocrimum, ferns and other rare plants thrive in the bog garden and woodland glades. Double herbaceous borders come into their own later in the summer and keep the display going throughout the season. Other garden areas include a Rose Garden, formal pond and Autumn Garden. A nursery sells hardy plants propagated onsite, many of them rare or unusual. The garden has been created over the past 25-30 years, building on its old setting. Its links to Robert Burns – including his song 'Craigieburn Wood' – provide another layer of history.

Directions: Three miles from the motorway (junction 15), two miles east of Moffat on the A708 Selkirk Road. Coming from Moffat, there are traffic lights straight ahead at the end of the bend. You can't miss the lodge and prayer flags.
