A trail around an historic rural estate village, 11 miles from Aberdeen City. The village has maintained its historic centre, along with the remains of a 17th century church and extensive tree-lined avenues. On view are a number of richly planted private gardens in a variety of styles from cottage gardens to more contemporary, along with small front gardens and vegetable patches. Hosted by the Fintray Gardening Club, there is also a chance to see work undertaken by the community to diversify and enhance the village green spaces, including a community orchard. There are also a number of wildflower areas planted for pollinators.
On the B977 – Fintray is three miles from Kintore, or five miles from Dyce; on the B979 (off the A96) – Fintray is three miles from Blackburn. Unfortunately there is no bus service. Car parking will be signposted and is available at the Lairds Park Recreation Area just next to the village hall. Cycle racks are available at the village hall and the recreation area.
Tickets and maps will be available at the Fintray Village Hall. The majority of the gardens are within easy walking distance of the village centre. Entry ticket includes tea and home baking at the village hall.
